Hi @draughtrider, thank you so much for your valuable feedback! Unfortunately, I didn't catch the slider slip-up until after I had published the survey - and I couldn't make changes once it was published. This is my first time using this survey platform so there were quite a few kinks to work out, and obviously a couple more to take note of next time! I assumed the slider would appear as default/neutral for participants, but I guess I was wrong! Thanks again
I was advised to have only the four chronological options for assessing risk and three options either way for political identity (a Likert scale), but I will review this decision in future research. I should have included the don't care option! As a previous vote-counter myself, I've seen the range of genetalia, poems, and expletives employed by the politically agnostic (nice term!).
Thanks again for participating
