    This is probably the oldest article I've ever linked to. It's from 1968. But still relevant today I think. It describes how people can have different tendencies in how they respond to questionnaires (and the like) which can lead to biased responses.

    I think it may be something I will reference in the future if I want to make such points so am posting it here as there may be the odd other person interested in it.

    I read the phrase "response sets" recently in a paper on the (widely used) SF-36 questionnaire.
    They described having differently ways of asking some of the questions to try to avoid the problem of response set effects:
