Intuitive Programming Survey

Well lookit that, two posts in a day.
Anyway, I've decided to conduct a simple survey to see if there's any correlation between certain personality disorders and programming intuitively (i.e. being able to 'see' how to solve the problem, no need to plan it out).

So, if you have programming experience, professional, formal or amateur, have a go at the survey.
It takes maybe 10-15 minutes, not long, and once I have enough results I will publish here a set of graphs and charts showing the results. It's all completely anonymous, and more is explained in the survey description. If you want to back out at any time, you can do so by just closing the survey.

However, don't bother taking the survey if you don't have any programming experience.
Also, only take the survey ONCE please, this is just out of curiosity, but I think the results might be interesting.

Anyway, here's the link:

I just took the survey, and I can tell you from experience that there is less correlation between personality/psychological disorders with programming than non-computer/video gaming (card gaming, wargaming, stuff like that).

Fair enough, I just want to see if there's a certain type of personality that is more likely to be a natural programmer than others. At least in the School of Computer Science here, the group appears to be made up of roughly the same kind of people.

In any case, thank you for taking part in the survey.
