As I stated before
, I agree that if you let people know that data is being collected about their use of the chatterbox it will impact their behavior; your method of running this "under radar" was the best way to go. My intent in requesting another run at collecting these stats was to try to secure in my own mind why I turned up as the most talkative monk in your sample. Before I saw your reply I figured out why this was the case (to the curious: phase wrapping
). Since I have absolved my curiosity I won't have to try to duplicate your experiment. :)
And no, I don't own 27 pairs of sweatpants.
