Why Attention Checks Are Essential

Updated: Mar 4


Tabulation of trap question

Typically, when we conduct research of any type, at least two "trap questions" are included.


Take the above example. The results are from a 2019 study on a consumer product in which we asked: "Which word best describes two people"? Pretty obvious


Did you know that more than 10% think that Walmart describes two people? These are "insights" that we can do without! Overall, 16% of the responses were (at worst) fraudulent, or (at best) inattentive.
