Subject:Information Anxiety Questionnaire From:NICHOLAS RICHARD MR <nrm -at- COVENTRY -dot- AC -dot- UK> Date:Fri, 27 Feb 1998 14:24:21 +0000
Some of you may recall that in December I wrote enquiring about
Information Anxiety. I've not had a chance to thank those that replied to
my request so I'm doing it now. Thanks.
The thing is, I need a bit more help. To add to the researh I have
already done, I'd like to include a questionnaire - which I'm hoping should
take no more than 10 minutes to complete. 29 questions might seem long
but they are mainly 'yes' or 'no' answers. If anyone has got the time
I'd be grateful if they could 'fill' it in. Thanks.
