Although we don't have sufficient responses to be drawing any real conclusions (nor do we yet have a set of Control Group results with which to compare our Adamthwaite findings), I know that some of you are very curious to discover what the Quiz results have shown so far. The following results are looking interesting:
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS73% of respondents can do the Vulcan sign79% have unattached ear lobes77% do not have dimples64% can curl their tongue61% have short 2nd toes
PERSONALITY TRAITS80% often get impatient with other people77% are not risk takers70% are competitive66% are not easily distracted from tasks71% often get wrapped up in books or films
BASIC DETAILS OF RESPONDENTS
The respondents so far are very well balanced between males (50%) and females (50%) and we have had a higher response rate from the older generation: 70% aged 41+ and 30% aged up to 40 (not surprising considering genealogy tends to be a hobby for older people).
39% of the respondents were born with the surname Adamthwaite themselves, and a majority of the remainder had an Adamthwaite within four generations of themselves.
However, until we can compare the results from a control group, there is no way of knowing whether the above findings on the physical characteristics and personality traits are likely to be as a result of heredity or whether they represent the normal range.
