    Well somebody just copypasted some file without even trying to format it, so I'm guessing spambot. Nobody will even bother manually copying this link since the link is broken as well and you can't simply click it.

    The link works and it's an actual survey, actually. I fixed it in the OP for convenience.

    I can't tell if it's a spambot, but the link is definitely legit and doesn't pass any ads or whatever.

    OT: Did the survey OP, good luck.

    Taking this survey has negatively affected my psyche.

    Don't bother. All these psych research questionnaires that are posted in PD are likely just to fish for your information. Just like this one from a few months ago. Although the latter, there's a possibility that it's just dumb third-year students who probably ened up failing their lab report.

    OP's survey
    - doesn't state University
    - doesn't state purpose of survey, which is pretty standard unless your carrying out an experiment that manipulates the independent variable. But even then full debrief needs to be followed through after the experiment
    - uses Google docs, meaning you have to be signed in to fill it out. Muh anonymity
    - retarded questions, and 4 to 5 items per scale. Not even using Likert-Type Scale, and Big Five to measure personality if that was the intention

    I'm so happy i have $30,000+ in student loan so i can tell which psyc surveys are bad

    Also you posted the survey in /v/ lul.
