• Brony Study Seeking Assistance

    Picture unrelated, and I DON'T CARE

    The Brony Study is a survey test that's been building a psychological profile of the brony community alongside non-members and comparing the results. The first survey concluded that, shock and awe, people who enjoy My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic were not significantly different from people who didn't. It's pretty unbelievable, I know.

    Well, the fine folks who run that survey set up a second one, and while there's been no shortage of brony participants, they've been having some trouble getting the word out to non-bronies to create a statistically significant sample size for comparison. That's where you come in!

    "But Phoe," I hear you saying, "I'm a brony! Or at least I play one on tv. How am I supposed to help?" I'll tell you. We all have at least one friend or family member in our lives who doesn't quite "get it" when they look at ponies. It's your job to ask them (politely) if they'd be willing to take a few minutes of their time to help out Science. Be sure to pronounce the capital s, that's very important. If you can get even one person to fill it out, you'll be helping to dispel many of the myths that cause so much heartache for many a brony-in-hiding.

    Head on over here, find the survey, and spread it around. Feel free to check out the results of the first survey while you're at it.
