On the backend of the site, you can see if someone entered more than once for the same person, that was the first issue this breakdown corrects and the biggest one. For the second and last issue this breakdown addresses, you have to keep in mind that a ‘very strongly disagree’ is equal to zero, and ‘very strongly agree’ is equal to 6. In order to obtain more accurate results and eliminate the obvious padding, all entries that are “perfect” or perfect with one 5, or entries that are “perfectly bad”, or perfectly bad with one 1, are eliminated. There were not very many entries that fell into any of these categories, overall less than 4% of the 329 entries were effected, but eliminating the verified padding paints a more realistic picture of what people chose, so it’s worth reporting.
Two PT’ers in particular saw the largest percentage changes with eliminating the padded entries, PT’er Chucksteak and Janella. Chucksteak had 4 “perfect” type of entries removed due to them being made by the same person. To note, this is not to say you did that for yourself Chucksteak, so relax. It’s just that it is verified that someone did. For PT’er Janella, she received a lot of padded 0’s from the same persons/people, so those entries were eliminated.
