Collecting Statistical Data for Rock Paper Scissors


CenSin

Recommended Posts

I'm collecting a bit of statistical data on the game of Rock Paper Scissors. If you've got a few minutes, please answer the following questions as best as possible. All of them require answers in percentages (0% to 100%). Please include your gender (male, female, shemale, …), approximate age, and the arm you're using (left arm or right arm) to play the game.

 

In the opening game (all (3) combined must add up to 100%) how likely are you to use:

 

  • …rock?
  • …scissors?
  • …paper?

 

How likely are you to use the same move again in the second (2) game

 

  • …if the first game was a draw?
  • …was a loss?
  • …was a win?

 

How likely are you to use the same move again in the third (3) game

 

  • …if the first game was a draw?
  • …was a loss?
  • …was a win?

 

I must warn you: they're repetitive questions, so read carefully.

 

Thanks, people!

 

Example:

Age 21, Male, Right Arm

 

In the opening game (all 3 combined must add up to 100%) how likely are you to use:

…rock? 50%

…scissors? 25%

…paper? 25%

How likely are you to use the same move again in the second (2) game

…if the first game was a draw? 50%

…was a loss? 50%

…was a win? 50%

How likely are you to use a different move in the third (3) game

…if the first game was a draw? 65%

…was a loss? 75%

…was a win? 95%

I don't know how thorough you're aiming to be with this statistical endeavor but be sure to be mindful of selection bias.

I get a lot of conflicting research from other sources, so I'm going to redo another set of data. Some say rock is favored and others say scissors or paper.
