My Tilt

April 24, 2006 at 12:20pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Last week’s Tilt post generated a decent amount of conversation, and that conversation got me thinking about my own biases and how people perceive me. Most of you have never met me and don’t really know who I am, and yet you probably have a number of preconceptions about me. I would love to know what some of those preconceptions are, so if you don’t mind humoring me, I’d appreciate if you would answer these questions. There are no right or wrong answers, only your perceptions.

(Note to folks who know me well: Please don’t answer the “factual” questions. It’s not that I don’t want the facts to get out, it’s just that I don’t want to bias other respondents’ perceptions too early in the process.)

  1. How old am I?
  2. What is my approximate income?
  3. Approximately where in Lincoln do I live?
  4. What is my religion?
  5. Which political party is listed on my voter registration card?
  6. On economic issues, do I lean left or right?
  7. On social issues, do I lean left or right?
  8. What is my opinion of the death penalty?
  9. What is my opinion of abortion?
  10. What is my opinion of immigration?
  11. What is my opinion of banning concealed weapons in Lincoln?
  12. Dave Heineman, Pete Ricketts, and Ernie Chambers are in separate carnival-style dunking booths. I have only one baseball to throw. Who do I dunk, and why?
  13. I have to leave the country for 10 years, but before I go I can eat at one Lincoln restaurant. Which restaurant do I choose, and why?
  14. Describe me in five words or less.
  15. Dogs or cats?

Mr. Wilson,

Will the real answers to these questions be answered at a later date?

Well to be honest, most of them already have been answered. But yeah, I’ll answer most of them at some point.
