VIC Start of Year event

14th Mar 18

Welcome to 2018!

To kick start our year we are bringing to Melbourne the winner of the People's Choice Award for Best Presentation from the 2017 AMSRS National Conference that was held in Sydney in September.

Join Lyndall Spooner who has 20+ years as a professional in the MR industry and Data Scientist Nick Wyatt to talk about the real data behind profanity in research responses.

This is not only a highly entertaining presentation, it is also some very interesting research. So please join us to kick off the year with a f&ck$ng bang and a few drinks with friends, clients and colleagues within the Victorian Research Community.

PRESENTATION: C-U-NEXT-TUESDAY! CAN WE LEARN ANYTHING FROM RESPONDENTS WHO USE PROFANITY IN MARKET RESEARCH?

You might have come across recent articles in social media reporting that people who use profanity are more intelligent, honest, and funnier – and if you have a potty mouth yourself you probably think they are right! But are they? Historical beliefs tell us that the use of profanity is an indicator of someone who exhibits norm-violating behaviours such as being dishonest, criminal activity and general anti-social behaviour.

As market researchers, we have also tended to remove respondents from studies when they have used foul language believing these respondents are more likely to have given dishonest feedback.

We will present our analysis on the use of profanity in market research and provide insights around:

  • Should we keep people who use profanity in our survey data?
  • Is the use of profanity in research on the rise?
  • If we screen out people who use profanity are we removing intelligent people who are giving us honest and informative feedback?
  • And is there an advantage in finding people within our data who have used profanity to get a clearer understanding of issues with products or services that most frustrate customers?
