Got Many Shoes to Fill?
The love for shoes is really a thing. People love collecting shoes, almost as if there is one for every outfit. There is something about them that just completes an outfit. This is the reason why it's got more to do with style than function these days. We thought this could be a shoe-tastic topic to conduct a poll on, so we asked 9,733 respondents how many shoes are part of their collection. The majority (35.36%) have somewhere between four to seven shoes, while 28.64% own 1 to 3 pairs only. 16.35% have just 8 to 10 shoes but what's interesting is that 19.64% have more than ten pairs. These numbers indicate how much people love their shoes. We guess one can never own too many of them!
Home Sweet Home
Everyone has a place they can call home. Be it owned or rented; people bring their touch to the space that reflects their personality. Whether it's a couch, curtain, or the colour of the walls � everything in a home means something. Even if they stay at a place for some time, they create unforgettable memories in that space with family and friends. But for our latest poll, we wanted to see how many people are staying in a home they own and how many have rented accommodation. Out of 9,863 respondents, 58.08% live in their own place, while 34.21% live in a rented space. 7.72% of the respondents are, however, planning to buy their own space.
Sport for Extreme Sports?
Extreme sports more often than not overlap with extreme tourism. It usually involves height or speed and is laden with risk. That perhaps is what draws people towards it. While some people will not go near such activities, some will latch on to any opportunity to try them out. What we wanted to know was if, given a chance, which extreme sport would people like to try out first. Out of 9,815 respondents, 37.22% would love to give Sky Diving a shot, and 27.75% would like to try Bungee Jumping. 16.31% would give a go at Scuba Diving, and 14.12% want to try their hand at Free Climbing. 4.60% think Cliff Diving is something they would love to try out. It seems almost everybody is already mentally prepared for these extreme sports! What they are looking for is a chance to jump at it, quite literally.
The Endless Daily Commute
Commuting to work is one of the most chaotic chores of modern life. From being stuck in traffic for hours to burning money on fuel, the problems of travelling to work are endless. Not only does it causes unnecessary stress but also drains one's energy and wastes time. Conducting a poll on the same, we asked 9,867 respondents how far they travel for work every day. Interestingly, 30.12% work from home while the rest have to hit the road. 26.85% travel less than 10 miles to reach their office, while 23.16% cover somewhere between 10 to 20 miles. And from here on, the distance just keeps getting longer. 11.66% say they travel for 20 to 30 miles daily, 4.67% go through 30 to 40 miles, and 3.55% have more than 40 miles to cover.
Staying Active to Stay Fit
The most effective way of staying physically and mentally fit is working out. A fitness regime is only something that enables our bodies to fight things that can weigh us down. Be it the stress from work or the common flu, a healthy body can win against its terrible clutches. So, people try not to skip their physical workout and try to fit it into their schedule at any cost. But what we wanted to gather was which of the physical activities people pursue to stay fit. Of the 10,163 people we asked, 50.11% love going to the gym and 18.97% stick to yoga. 7.99% love to hit the swimming pool to get their blood flowing, and 4.82% find CrossFit training helpful. 18.10% have other ways of staying fit.
Work Efficiency: Impacted by Internal or External Factors?
Work is life; the reason why everyone wants to give their best to their job. Sometimes, however, there are obstacles for people to do so. While we can point fingers at a person for not performing well, the fault could very well lie on external factors not in their control. And we, at Opinion Bureau, wanted to get to the root of this problem. So, we conducted a poll with 10,006 respondents and asked them the issue they usually face while performing their work. 33.64% attribute it to a lack of clarity on the task at hand and 28.86% say more often than not they face a delay in the data received from other departments. 23.77% of the respondents say a software glitch becomes a hindrance and 13.73% feel burdened with extra work that isn't related to their Key Responsibility Area.
Who Holds the Reins of Your Household?
Running a household is not as simple as it seems. The decisions can be as small as picking the brand of tea or as big as choosing the right school for the kid in the house. After all, it is these choices that make a house a home. At Opinion Bureau, we wanted to understand with whom this decision-making capacity usually lies. So, we conducted a poll with 9,673 respondents, asking them who runs their home. 37.81% say their mothers have the final word, while 22.05% say it�s their wives. 21.38% say the father is the final decision maker, and 13.18% leave it to their husbands. The poll also revealed that in some households it's the sister (3.42%) and the brother (2.16%) who have the power.
Does Networking Work?
Many believe in the philosophy of 'your network is your net worth.' So, what is networking? In the words of Michele Jennae, networking is not about just connecting people. It�s about connecting people with people, people with ideas, and people with opportunities. We thought this could be an interesting topic to conduct our latest poll on. So, we asked 10,504 respondents whether networking has helped them in their professional lives or not. For 26.76%, networking leads to exposure to new experiences, 14.09% benefit from the exchange of ideas, and 13.43% use it for giving a referral for a job. And for 39.03% of the people, it has been a mixture of all three. But for 6.68% of the respondents, networking has not been helpful in either of the above three departments.
The Most-Loved Social Media App
If there�s a smartphone there�s a social media app on it because everyone has at least one app downloaded on it. Sometimes they use it for just communication purposes and sometimes for entertainment. They might not be posting content on their feed, but they would be definitely scrolling through it. What we at Opinion Bureau wanted to gather was which is that one app people can�t do without. So, we conducted a poll with 11,020 respondents asking them if they had to scrap all the social media apps except one, which one would they keep. 31.67% will never uninstall WhatsApp, 15.11% will keep YouTube, and 16.14% can�t do without Facebook. Next on the favorites� list are Instagram (14.30%), TikTok (6.32%), Twitter (5.90%), LinkedIn (3.59%), Telegram (1.99%), Pinterest (1.30%), and WeChat (1.06%). Some other apps that made it to the list are Snapchat (0.83%), Hike (0.64%), QQ (0.57%) and Reddit (0.57%).
