Rock, Paper Or Scissors?

My brother said that one of these 3 options is chosen more often than the others. I need to check this theory.

So, what will it be:

[poll id=31]

  1. The poll represents what I have seen in my history of playing this “game”.

  2. In germany it’s Schere Stein Papier (scissors rock paper) so maybe a different oder makes a difference? Don’t know… but it feels more probably to choose the last what you say.

    But anyhow, good to know this. I’ll choose paper next time (‘cuase the odds are that the other chooses rock)…

  3. hmm, this is crazy. needs more votes and perhaps random order of choices :]

  4. I think you should run this poll again in a few weeks, but change the order of the choices.

    See if it’s just option 1 that gets chosen the most perhaps?

  5. Maybe rock is chosen more often due to its hard/strong/smashing nature. It feels stronger than the other options.

  6. 81 votes total. Enough to call this conclusive? :)

    # Rock (46.0%, 37 Votes)
    # Paper (36.0%, 29 Votes)
    # Scissors (19.0%, 15 Votes)

  7. I said rock, because it is the first (even when we tell “rock, paper or scissor”). Not a very good argument, but makes sense to me…

  8. Yeah, I figured also that Scissors would be the most popular, so I randomly selected from “the other two”.

    I bet looking at the stats the others thought so too.

  9. Would guess rock would be the most popular since it requires no effort to form – your hand is already in the form of the rock, while you have to manipulate your hand to form the scissors or paper.

  10. Strange (My bro said that “scissors” would be the most popular). We’ll see if this ratio changes…)

  11. Scissors is the most complex figure of all of those so it’s likely to be the rarest. The other two are quite natural to human beings from their babyhood so the probability of appearance is about the same. :)
