It might not seem like much to you, but polls like my last one are quite intriguing to me. As of this writing, the results sit at 43% set radio favorites the way I do, 46% set stations in numerical order of preference, 4% don’t set favorites, and 7% don’t listen to the radio.
While I realize the poll has a margin of error and also cannot be used to determine the preferences of the nation or world at large, it’s still a good reminder to me.
See, while it’s logical to think “Not everyone thinks the same way I do,” I don’t tend to act on that assumption. I tend to think my way is the only way (or the right way) and when I’m faced with a different outlook, it boggles my mind. Even a silly little poll about how people set their radio favorites can help me remember that kind of thing. If I’m reminded enough, I might eventually take it to heart and start operating under that ruleset.
The sooner the better, right?
