Let’s skip the usual niceties and soon head to the details of this survey conducted by iBRIDGE’s Research Plus for goo Ranking, looking into, as it were, cute dogs’ rears.

Erotic men bits, according to Japanese women

With the real summer upon us, goo Ranking took a look at what bits of men’s bodies on display in summer do women find erotic. If a female body version appears, I will of course report it, although I suspect the answers will be much more limitied…

Demographics

goo Rankings seems to have switched permanently to a different research company, iBRIDGE’s Research Plus, where between the 7th and 10th of July 2014 500 members of their monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. The sample was split 50:50 male and female, but no further demographics were given. This question was for the females only.

I hope this image of answer number one doesn’t get my female readers too hot under the collar:

I can do the hairy chest bit, but all of the others are way out of my reach!

Japanese sleep patterns

How much sleep do you get on average on weekdays? graph of japanese statisticsThe company Aisin Seiki recently conducted a survey into sleep.

Demographics

Between the 24th and 26th of June 2014 1,206 people aged between 18 and 69 (and implied to be in paid employment) completed an internet survey, although details of whether it was a closed or open survey were not reported. Detailed demographic was similarly unavailable.

Further information on sleep patterns of 100 people with 100 different jobs is available, as is a sleep monitoring device which they presumably used to collect said 100 people’s data.

Well, I’d hate to say how little sleep I get on weekdays, but you can look at the post timestamp and work it out for yourself. At least I very rarely wake before my alarm.

Wives’ disappointments after five years of marriage

I’m still trying to get back into the swing of blogging, so here comes another stopgap from goo Ranking, looking at what changes in their husbands wives were disappointed to see after five years of marriage.

Demographics

goo Rankings seems to have switched permanently to a different research company, iBRIDGE’s Research Plus, where between the 27th and 30th of June 2014 500 members of their monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. The sample was split 50:50 male and female, but no further demographics were given. This question was for the females only, and looking at the percentages below, a further sub-sample was used, perhaps those married for five years or more?

I was all these things before we got married, so I don’t think I’ve disappointed my wife.

Japanese’ worst drunken moments

I’m back with more nonsense from goo Ranking, taking a look at the most horrible drunken incidents they have experienced.

Demographics

Between the 27th and 30th of June 2014, 500 members of not the goo Research monitor group, but instead a company named iBridge, more specifically their Research Plus monitor group, completed a private internet-based questionnaire. The sample was exactly 50:50 male and female, and rather than award 100 points to the top answer, they chose to report the results as a percentage of the total.

I guess the drunken train sprawl is too commonplace to feature in the list!

Note also that this survey most likely presented a list of all 25 situations and people indicated those they had experienced, or at least remembered having experienced.

Disappointingly, I can only recall having five of these experiences – surely my readers can do better!

Bad stuff other people do on the internet

goo Ranking recently published a survey looking at what internet-based actions by other people might be considered bad behaviour.

Demographics

The survey was conducted between the 26th and 28th of March 2014, and 1,088 people completed a private web-based questionnaire. I have finally found where they hid the demographic information, so I can also inform you that 52.6% of the sample were female, 22.2% in their teens, 25.7% in their twenties, 26.5% in their thirties, and 25.6% in their forties. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.

I suppose this blog would fall somewhere around the number 18 category, although I do add value by translating, honest!

Knocking big knockers

goo Ranking took a look at big breasts, specifically the problems with them.

Demographics

The survey was conducted between the 26th and 28th of March 2014, and 1,048 people completed a private web-based questionnaire. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample. I think the survey was for the women in the sample only, but it is not clear from the description.

A fine pair of knockers yesterday:

I translated this survey in the first person, but non-big-breasted people also answered.

Japanese expectations for the World Cup

Do you think Japan will progress past the league stage? graph of japanese statisticsWith Japan about to kick-off their World Cup tournament playing Cote D’Ivoire in just over seven hours time, I just have time to squeeze in this survey from @nifty looking at people’s expectations for the World Cup.

Demographics

Between the 30th of May and the 5th of June 2014 4,694 members of the @nifty service completed a private internet-based questionnaire. No further demographics were provided.

I’m probably going to watch the match tomorrow morning, although I might just have to listen in on audio as Sunday morning is my vacuuming time. For the final match against Greece, the office is have a group viewing on the hundred-and-whatever-inch television we have. The match is due to finish at 8:45 am local time, but as work officially starts at 8:30 the management has generously offered to, err, switch the telly off at 8:25 so we can all get ready for the start of work. I predict there will be more people taking holidays or finding an excuse to come in to work slightly later than actually watching in the office; I might even make up some excuse myself and attend a public viewing.

Facebook clickbait Japanese cannot resist

goo Ranking had another fun survey, this time looking at what dodgy link topics on SNS’s people end up clicking on.

Demographics

The survey was conducted between the 26th and 28th of March 2014, and 1,048 people completed a private web-based questionnaire. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.

Sadly, “Translations of dodgy link topics” does not feature on the list.

Ironing in Japan

How often do you do ironing? graph of japanese statistics

One thing that I still can’t quite get used to in Japan is that despite most people being fashion-conscious, a similar amount seem to be iron-oblivious, with mildly-wrinkled clothes not being an unusual sight on both males and females. Therefore, when I found this survey from Happy Note, a parent-oriented child-rearing support site, looking at doing the ironing, I knew I had to translate it.

Demographics

Between the 15th and 21st of May 2014 527 members of the Happy Note web site completed a private internet-based questionnaire. No further demographics were given.

My wife doesn’t iron, and I limit mine to trousers and shirts. My mother irons everything right down to socks, but none of that has rubbed off on me!
