What did you think of the survey? Was it hard/easy to answer? The survey was interesting to answer. Some of the questions got me thinking hard on the effects and influence of a person's opinion and also on how different things can be when it comes to objective and subjective things. It made me realize that things that are factual, like how atoms are made and what they are made up of can often times have only one explanations unlike other subjective things like choosing which books was better.
