Blog Post #3: Tuck Effect
— Fruit of the Loom (@FruitOfTheLoom) September 24, 2015
- This research study is about the positive effects men experience in their lives because they tuck in their shirts rather than leave them un-tucked. For examples, “tuckers” are 8% more likely to date often. I chose this because it is light hearted and humorous. It also has a lot of great info graphics.
- This research was funded and carried out by Fruit of the Loom. They asked 1000 men about their personal lives (happiness relationships, optimism, social status and income). They came to the conclusion that men who tuck in their shirts come out on top of those who do not.
- I think its important to make note that Fruit of the Loom is a large company and this is more of a marketing platform for them to sell more shirts rather than they were genuinely curious about the topic and their research questions. Also, how did they obtain this data? (Interview, survey, etc.) All that was said was that 1000 men “revealed” their personal information. I wonder how it was actually revealed.
