Done it, but question 17 is far too broad (like a few others), it won't get you anything meaningful, particularly as you didn't allow people any other options apart from yes/no. I don't think either applies, but filled it in so that you get another questionnaire completed.
I have supervised many dissertations in this sort of area (and indeed have just done a PhD) on adventure sports and the media) and I would suggest you go for some more qualitative data. Try to explore what people are really thinking rather than just giving them a yes or no answer.
> "Is it more acceptable if an individual justifies their reasons for taking part in a risky activity, opposed to taking part for cheap thrills/adrenaline rush?"
Yes, I had a problem with that - these are very complex issues. It has the feel of a leading question, but leading to where? I finally put No, but only because I'm usually more interested in what people actually do than in their rationalisations/explanations/justifications.
Q17 - Acceptable to who(m)? I answered "yes" on the basis that it's more acceptable to me if my climbing partner has a thoughtful, cautious attitude to risk rather than doing it for the adrenaline rush. But I wouldn't want to pass judgement on the motives of others generally (except perhaps where their actions affect others around them - eg their own climbing partners, mountain rescue etc)
Done it. Not to sure where you think you're going with the last question; why to we have to justify climbing to anyone? If someone does it for the rush fair play to them. I scare myself sometimes on rather low grade climbs, not intentionally but because the unexpected occurs.
Also, intrigued by Q11 and how you are going to correlate / use the responses. I put cycling, and am of the opinion that my cycling commute was much riskier and afforded more frightening/adrenaline-filled moments than years of rock-climbing.
Done. You managed to get me to fill it in where normally I would become exasperated - so clearly it wasn't too bad.
However - I agree with the sentiment of some of the other posters. I don't truly know what the value of your data will be at the end of this with so many yes/no answers and without a more in-depth and subjective discussion about risk and climbing.
A climber tends to find that his attitude to the sport changes over time. In my 21 years of climbing I have been through phases of being more or less daring (reckless even) and tried many different disciplines for different reasons. My perceptions of risk have changed a lot in that time.
Unlike many I thought it was a pretty poor survey! Certainly didn't seem to come from someone who knew much about climbing (though it seems my impressions were wrong - I note the OP has done some stuff at Windgather)
