To find out a little more about the way media may affect young people I have created a short survey, I have kept it anonymous and easy to answer as talking about violent behaviour can be something people try to hide, as they feel ashamed. This is to determine a little more information about violence and society and see whether the secondary research supports this or if another avenue to debate will arise.
Below is the questionnaire that will be handed out to collect data:
Violence Within Society, Does it Link to Gaming?
Gender Male Female
Do you watch films or play games with violent content?
Have you ever tried to copy something you’ve seen on television, in a film or in a game?
Do you ever find yourself coming across situations similar to those you watch on films or TV?
Yes – (Please give an example)
Have you ever been in a fight or acted aggressively towards someone in a similar way to the aggressive/violent content you watch?
When watching or playing action/violent content do you ever think about what you would do in the real life situation?
– If you answered yes, was your response a FIGHT or FLIGHT response?
