The Survey Of All Surveys
"The Survey of all Surveys" was inspired by the new decade, the Mayan Calendar, Carl Sagan, thoughts about The Universe and Life in general.
A bit of trivia: "The Survey of all Surveys" is the extended version of "The 4 Questions", developed in 2006.

Please note that this, being "The Survey of all Surveys", is a full commitment survey i.e. answers to all questions are required (you can't skip) and there are no "I don't know" answers. If you are going to fill in this survey, you might as well do it properly and all the way. If you haven't thought about a particular question, maybe now is a good time to do it. The important thing is to have fun.

As the votes are anonymous, please answer what you think, not what is politically correct, or what you think the correct answer should be. There are no right and wrong answers, you will not be judged. Some of the questions allow multiple choices, some don't.

Feel free to disseminate "The Survey of all Surveys", but please don't use any or all questions as a part of other surveys, not that copyright is the issue, but it would be nice if all the data was collected in one place. Thank you for your time. The survey was designed and is maintained by the friendly people at and

"The Survey of All Surveys" is dynamic and the questions change frequently!
Please visit us often.
Sit back, relax and enjoy...

To have the full experience, please watch Carl Sagan's "Pale Blue Dot", BEFORE completing the survey. It takes 3 minutes.
