Golem, self-identification polls tells us something about how people perceive themselves, or wish to be perceived, which can be pretty illuminating for example on questions of identity. There's a margin of error, usually social pressure (for example during the Trump campaign many people dared not admit to voting Trump due to legacy media and public shaming of Trump voters), but it is usually negligible. Even if people poll how they think they are expected to identify it can still be useful (as it says something about biases). In a poll about whether you view yourself as a citizen or the World or the US it can say something about where your loyalties lie, how much you identify with the local culture and your view on things such as nationalism and globalism. The poll Oberyn posted showed that white Americans identify stronger with America than other racial groups in America and that natives identify stronger with America than people born abroad.

Without having a valid IQ at hand, maybe the level of education and what he does for a living might be a good powerlevel indicator.

i'll take it, let's hear it golem, captain of stupidity

Right. I'm surrounded by imbeciles. What did I expect to come from this.

I don't know what you expected, but I expected some coherence even from an idiot like you but you have none of it.

And all of this is so obvious that it shouldn't have to be explained to anyone above the age of 5.

Ignorance is still fine, but Golem actually pretended to know better ("NUH-UH THAT'S NOT SCIENTIFIC AND NOT DATA AND SELF IDENTIFICATION LOL"), which is the funny thing.
Meaning lies as much
in the mind of the reader
as in the Haiku.

Finally someone can make a coherent sentence.

Right, because I'm the person who started flinging IQ scores and powerlevels around. I am, without question, now obliged to disclose my indicators to you.

It was more an attempt to reconcile you with your adversaries in this thread. Because you are probably made of the same parasitic wood. Apart from Angy of cause. He is most likely a real human bean and that's what kind of scares me.

The quality largely depending on how the polling is conducted, polling is not supposed to be an exact science but can be useful for reasonable approximations, probabilities and tendencies. Especially if a number of polls get similar results from different samples.

Great. Now that we've stated the obvious, let's see some practical uses, of knowing as a reasonable approximation, that so and so are inclined this or this much to poll as a US citizen vs a citizen of the world. Or I guess we are just polling for fun. C'mon then, use the data. Make a prediction. Let's come back to it.

Reasonable approximations are exactly how most of our world works, we dont always have to instantly make practical use on them. It could be just a piece for a larger application or understanding, that comes to play later.

We are fucking retarded. One important thing in growing up is the realization that nobody fully understands anything and mostly everyone in this world is winging it. Even scientists, whose "data" was once considered the undeniable truth for most of our questions. Thats why we by now have even bigger retards for example claiming that the world is flat. You can either accept this reality for what it is and just take part in this madness or kill yourself.

Funny thing is that the people disagreeing with you on this are the people disagreeing with me on the previous pages, per hec principa. Also you are very confused, if you think that flat-earthers are somehow a modern phenomenon.
