Hi everyone, I'm a retired Achaean posting on an alt I had planned to play with my retirement spoils but never found the time. :'(

So, I have to survey at least 10 different people for my psychology class. Since you guys are so awesome I was hoping some of you would be willing to respond. I am paying in gratitude and possibly a like or an awesome up vote if that is still a thing on these boards.

I would just like to know the first 3 terms or words that pop into your mind when you hear the following:

  • Children
  • Teenagers
  • Middle-Aged Adults
  • Senior Citizens

Thanks!

    My site will remain up, but will not be maintained. The repository will continue to have scripts added to it if I decide to play another game. Maybe I'll see you around in Starmourn!

    Teenagers: Neanderthal-like grunting.

    (Does that count as three words?)
    - (Eleusis): Ellodin says, "The Fissure of Echoes is Sarathai's happy place."
    - With sharp, crackling tones, Kyrra tells you, "The ladies must love you immensely."
    - (Eleusian Ranger Techs): Savira says, "Most of the hard stuff seem to have this built in code like: If adventurer_hitting_me = "Sarathai" then send("terminate and selfdestruct")."
    - Makarios says, "Serve well and perish."
    - Xaden says, "Xaden confirmed scrub 2017."

    • Middle-Aged Adults
    Middling, other, turnip
    • Senior Citizens
    Elderly, grandmother, military
    The actual first 3 terms/words to pop into my mind are unlikely to be all that relevant (surprisingly though, I can mostly figure out why each term came up).

    If I disregard the instructions by giving it some more thought and filtering it down to relevant things (though still differing greatly from my actual opinions/thoughts on those age groups):
    Children: Little, cute, annoying
    Teenagers: Annoying, old, arrogant
    Middle-Aged Adults: Dead, tired, bored
    Senior Citizens: Old, grumpy, happy

    I think I know why Middle-Aged adults made you think of turnip.
