Poll results -- your view on your life
Hey! There's a new poll (changing your mind) on the sidebar ---->
In the past year, my quality of life -- compared to others in my family, community and country...
...has been better than average
...has been about average
...has been worse than average
103 votes total
It's hard to pose an objective version of this question, since self-evaluations are fundamentally subjective and irreconcilable among people, but it's interesting to know why people rate themselves better/same/worse than the average of people around them. I, for example, feel that my quality of life has been better than average because I've been able to work and travel -- without money or health problems -- at the same time as I enjoy a lovely relationship with Anne.
Does anyone care to share why they answered this poll (or would answer it) the way they did? And does your answer have any impact on how you will live your life in 2011?
