Sometimes you read about a study and think, "Someone's actually being paid to study that?"

This isn't one of those cases! The results are actually pretty interesting and not necessary what I would expect. I was surprised to learn that every participant had some household/family influence. I'm an exception to that - I had no family at home that were into technology or that encouraged me to look into it. It was an interest that I came upon myself.
