Survey of Consumer Attitudes

This survey is part of an international research project that explores the relationships between personal values and consumer attitudes regarding T-shirts. It takes about 25 minutes to fill out this questionnaire. Your answers are valuable and will help advance the field of consumer research. All responses will be treated anonymously, will not be used for any commercial purposes, and will not be shared with any third-parties under any circumstances.

After completing the survey, please submit your email address on the last page to receive an Amazon.com gift card valued US$ 8 (or 800 Yen if you respond from Japan), purchased by public research funds, for a correctly (!!!) and reliably (!!!) filled questionnaire. This information is needed to contact gift card recipients. It will not be shared with any third parties, will not lead to any spam emails, and will not be saved in a database with your survey responses.

Respondents are allowed to fill out up to three reliable surveys with correct (!) and true (!) details. To prevent unethical research and waste of taxpayer money, respondents under suspicion of fraud (responses for imaginary persons / fake profiles, responses without reading the questions, etc.) will not receive ANY gift cards.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this survey.
