Circuit Bending Survey Results

It’s been a long time coming but the results are finally in. Back in April I created an online circuit bending survey to gather some information about the circuit bending community.  The original survey had a few specific questions asking people to list things they had bent but I removed these after a couple of days as it seemed impractical to list large amounts of bends.

Big thanks to the 300 of you who took the time to complete the survey, I think the results make quite interesting reading, some of it is pretty predictable but there are a few surprises in there. The overwelming majority come from the US and there were only 6 female benders, come on girls get your soldering irons out!
I realise that the “country” results may be a little skewed as the survey was conducted in English but there were quite a few from all corners of the globe. One person stated their country as the “Confederate States of America”, I had to count that as the US (sorry) 🙂

I have only listed the top 30 occupations although there were over 100 entered, including a Brahman, a Hot Dog Vendor, a Pilot, an Adventurer, an Activist, a Surgical Repair Technician and a Comic Book Specialty Retailer (Jeff Albertsson perhaps). 2 people listed their occupation as SHIT.

I’d also like to say a very big thanks to GetLoFi‘s excellent blog who kindly posted a link to the survey which generated a considerable amount of traffic. Sorry it took so long to get the results together but I’ve had an incredibly busy summer.

I have compiled the results into a PDF document which you can download below and browse at your leisure, hope you find it interesting.
