So, I came across this article on MacDailyNews… one of my all time favorite spots to catch up to the minute news about Apple products. Evidently, Mindset Media has released a Mindset Profile of Mac users. Here is an excerpt, “The study, with a robust sample of 7,500 respondents, revealed that people who are highly open-minded or, in Mindset Media parlance, “Openness 5’s”, are 60 percent more likely than people in the general population to have purchased a Mac. These purchasers are also more liberal, less modest, and more assured of their own superiority than the population at large.”
I am definitely confident… does that correlate to a feeling of superiority? Not so much. I am fairly modest and not at all liberal. Although I am Green… in a true sense of the word. You won’t find me chained to a tree or marching for animal rights with PETA. I will spread the word about living Green… and I will do my part to raise my family in that mindset.
We are a mixed Catholic Christian family. We attend both church services. We are Republicans. We recycle everything possible. We buy all natural, organic and as often as possible, local products. I don’t walk around my house undressed or cavort in public nudity. I have an above average IQ and have a low tolerance for ignorance. I married a man that is at least as smart as me (if not more so). He calls himself a short haired hippy. Maybe we are. I am against abortion, I believe in large families, I believe in a greater good and that starting in my own little corner is the best way to create change.
Do I fall into the Mac profile? Perhaps not. I do, however, adore my Macs and all Apple products. Read the entire article here: http://www.macdailynews.com/index.php/weblog/comments/16101/
I am interested in your Mac Profile. Who buys a Mac?
