Smart Hearing Aid
« on: May 09, 2016, 09:30:02 pm »
I am a student at the McCormick School of Engineering, and currently working on a class project about hearing aids. My team and I are working on developing a smart hearing aid that will be able to improve the quality of life for the hearing impaired. We would like to get some feedback from the hearing aid community to determine which features would serve the community best. If you have a minute to fill out this brief survey, my team and I would greatly appreciate it.

Survey Monkey is a legit site used for conducting surveys. I doubt their are any concerns using it, many companies use it as well as universities.
Diagnosed Feb 2010 with 2.3cm x 3.2cm left side AN
Trans Lab May 26, 2010 tumor had grown to 4.5cm, University of Michigan
Subsequent MRIs are clear
Left single sided deafness

That and the fact that any link could be disguised would mean that all links everywhere are dubious and none of us should ever click on a link.  Also, if you have a decent browser, proper anti-virus software, and don't operate online as a super-user you should be okay.

I clicked on the link.  The survey is long and to me, tedious, so I didn't bother with it.  I have a short attention span, so others might not come to the same conclusion as I did.
Diagnosed June 2014 1cm AN at 47 years of age.  Had fluctuating symptoms since 2006.    6 mos MRI (Dec 2014) showed no growth, MRI  in July 2015 showed no growth.  MRI Jan 2016 showed no growth.  MRI Aug 2016 showed no growth.  I'm gonna ride the WW train as long as I can.

My reluctance was partly suspicion (never heard of surveymonkey) but more a desire to avoid surveys in general. Seems everywhere I go, up pops a window that says "We value your opinion, take a survey." Very annoying. The only survey I ever take these days is on Kroger's website because it gets me 50 fuel points.  ;D

I hear ya.  Even when I want to take a survey, the seem to go on forever and I just give up on them.  For instance, we LOVE our family Dr. and have been very happy with her for 12 years.  I get a link for a survey of our opinion of the service I received at a recent visit.  Sure, I think, I'll fill this out and make her look good because she deserves to look good.  5 minutes into the thing and it is getting to be like that multi-fasic personality test they make you take before you can get in the military or law enforcement.  I mean this thing is just tedious and getting worse and after 5 minutes I am not even a 3rd of the way through it!

The Kroger survey takes me about 30 seconds, I answer all the questions the same way, zap, zap, zap, and get my 50 fuel points. Each 100 fuel points gets me a dime off a gallon of gasoline so it's worth doing a couple of times a month.

I ignore surveys that say "you have a chance to win..." I don't want a "chance" to win, I want something right now for my time.

Here's a surprise for you: I know what the MMPI (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory) is. Took it a few times to get certain jobs. What a joke.

Yes, the MMPI reminds me of the old Groucho Marx line about not wanting to be a member of any club that would let me join.  When you see your co-workers and realize that they "passed" the MMPI, it kind of proves how silly the thing is.

I used to walk out of job interviews when the MMPI was a requirement. My attitude: Ask me anything about my field (insurance) but a company that relies on MMPI to make hiring decisions isn't for me in the first place.

I never objected to a JEPS (Job Effectiveness Prediction System) test because the questions measured insurance and business knowledge. I always aced those.
