No i am not much interested in answering any surveys but lately I joined few websites from where I receive some surveys like one per fortnight or one in two days but they are of less value. Anyways, I would like to know. Because I sometimes lie lol If you like to lie in surveys so that you may receive more surveys or you wanna earn from that?

I'm usually honest and accept I didn't qualify. Then I lie a little, and I'm still not qualified. I think I should start lying BIG.

@singhisback Italy must be better than India, but it is not a Tier 1 country yet, so I'm not that "privileged" either. Okay, going to fake diseases and careers in big companies. Oh, and pregnancies.

I've done that, especially about my age as I'm often too old for a survey. But I haven't done any for a very long time. They're so utterly boring.

Actually I am too young for them and even heard a crux that those who are of 40-60 age receive more surveys in India

@singhisback Not true...max surveys are targeted to 30 - 50 yrs age, 60 is retirement age and hence marketers are not interested to know their preference..

@nomus24g I wanted to write the same. 60 is far too old. People are interesting for surveys when they have their own money to spend. Yet, @nomus24g, many old age pensioners are well off - at least in developed countries - and a lot of products are directed especially at them.

So basically, what you are telling us is that you are sometimes dishonest when it comes to earning money...why does that not surprise me?

Not earning money but I mean I never get qualified to attempt a survey and actually I'm in life insurance business and if I answer them that then they will disqualify me. So

I have never been successful with surveys and left my last survey site in 2011 or 2012. I was getting very few surveys. Most of them were targeting families with children or women and were not available for me. I would not lie on a survey site as they can find it quickly. When it comes to lies, I think that task sites are more funny, and it is most of the time the employer who pays you for a lie like a flattering comment, a like, etc.

@topffer I would be much easier for me to lie about having children than flattering strangers. I mean, I can always find the silver lining. "Bad music video, bad song with ugly singer" - "Nice... background".

@sabtraversa I have no problem with flattering strangers, especially with double meaning compliments. I had created 3 fake FB accounts, among them a woman because a woman was more credible than a man when an opinion was needed about a nail polish or a foundation.

No, I refuse to lie because then their survey purpose is defeated. They want honest answers, so their final conclusion is fairly accurate.

I do not do surveys but I was taught not to lie so I stick to that moral standard the best I could, I would probably just lie if I or somebody else would be in danger or get hurt or killed but not on things that would pay me less than nickles and dimes.

I'm not saying that we need to lie everything. Like for example i work for life insurance and they may disqualify me on this background so I never tell about it

@singhisback Quite a few times some businesses asked me to do a 2-minute survey. Well, I timed it. The moment I found out it went past 5 minutes, I said, 'no more!' and walked away.

I dislike telling lie, because I do not want to remember the lie and tell lie again for letting people believe the lie. So, I do not used to tell lie now and tell the true in surveys.

Sometimes surveys can be a pain to do they are boring and at times it can be very frustrating to have to take a long survey to qualify to take a survey and they say no thanks you don't meet the criteria.Others don't offer change on really long surveys making it really unpleasant to do.I have lied on some before.
