Are you a robot?

Usually when you do a survey they have a thing you have to do to make sure you are not a robot. You may need to type in a captcha. You may be asked to look at images and select certain images. For example, those with traffic lights. Or sometimes you click on a box and that's it. I've never actually been asked in a survey "Are you a robot?" with the option of selecting Yes or No. That is until I today. I was tempted to select Yes just to see what would happen. But I decided not to do it as I was actually trying to complete a survey so I can earn some SB (points on Swagbucks).

I've always wanted to respond yes to that when I saw it, but haven't had the guts to actually do it. I think next time I see that option, i'm going to select yes just to see what happens.

I wonder what would happen. That is something that would be interesting to see.

@star_disgate Well, the worst that could happen is they disqualify me from the survey.

I already found several times that little image asking "Are you a robot?", weird!

It wasn't an image. This was a question with yes or no options.

Yeah. It can happen that we sometimes feel like a robot, especially when what we are doing gets monotonous.

I'm glad you didn't say you were a robot!

Surveys is redundant and you just got to remember companies need our input. I work at surveyjunkie.com.

I've never tried surveyjunkie. Only do Swagbucks surveys and studies on Prolific.

First time I've seen in a survey on SB. And I don't think I've seen that in Prolific studies either.

@lovebuglena It's a survey site like Swagbucks when you can play games and answer surveys and watch videos. You can cash out at $10 or higher.

It's rare, but it's a needed evil. You can create a program that will check a box, or something of that nature. I typically look for the audio option, since I can't always see what they want me to type.

@lovebuglena Same here. I can understand why they do it, but god.... not very disabiled friendly. I used to think the sighted people had an easier time, but they need to make it difficult. I'm glad I don't deal with them often.

@kaylachan I remember sometimes it was hard to tell if it was a zero or the letter 0.
