Of the Bees who add polls to their post, I was just wonder how many of you actually go with what gets the most votes from other Bees or if you go against popular opinion and go with what your heart tells you.

I think I have always gone with what the bees have suggested. But not only because of the results but it was great confirmation.

I voted “other” because I think the one time I did a “which shoe” poll I actually hadn’t decided which shoe I liked best and wanted to see other opinions. I don’t think I ended up with the shoe that got the most votes, but it wasn’t because I had my heart set on one before posting the poll. I ordered the top two, and returned the #1 vote because it was super uncomfortable, which isn’t something you can tell from a picture on screen 🙂

I didn’t respond to this poll cause at times it could be all answers 🙂 But I think the best thing about the polls is when people justify their opinions below, cause then you can say 20% of people think these shoes are lame, but they all said that its just cause they hate purple…

Usually polls just help me make my decision. It’s not like I would change my mind on something just because of a poll, but if I was having a hard time deciding between one or two things, the popular opinion may be enough to sway me in one direction! 🙂

I’ve definitely used the polls to come to decisions regarding little details… which color necklace should I get my bridesmaids, if you were a bridesmaid, which would you rather have…, a poll even helped me decide which litterbox to buy!
There have been polls that I’ve posted where I’ve decided to go a totally seperate direction, or I’ve gone against the popular vote. It really just depends.
I also love when people justify their opinions, like JennyPenny said!

I will admit that the polls can be a great confirmation and help me “know” I made the right choice but usually I use it for things that I can’t decide between and want honest opinions/help with 🙂

Yes, one of my polls helped me decide on which wedding dress to buy! I couldn’t decide for the life of me!

I guess mine falls into “other”. I had a dress poll once, 80% chose my original purchased dress against the one I was thinking about. At the time I listened to the poll and stuck to the original. 4 months later when my dress came in, I hated it and bought the second dress anyway. But…after it was all said and done, I still wore my original dress. So I listened to the poll, then didn’t listen, then listened again 🙂

I havent’ done a poll yet but I often feel the anonymous polls are illustrative of what “true” responses might be so I keep that in mind when others offer suggestiosn similar to my own ideas.

I did not follow the advice of the polls, and I must admit the responses frustrated me a bit, so I won’t be doing that again.
The first time I posted dresses, people said I should get pics of me IN the dress, after I had pointed out that I wasn’t allowed and was never alone to sneak one. Then I drove several hours to get pictures and no one liked them. I had tried on more dresses than I want to for the rest of my life and the last answer I wanted was to keep looking.
They suggested an A-line dress (they both were) they suggested a corset back (they were), I ended up feeling like I was supposed to keep looking until I had “the moment” and “knew” I found the dress. If that had happened I wouldn’t have needed a poll!
I just picked a dress and went with it.

Thanks! I did a poll about my necklace selection. I thought that everyone gave really good reasons for the necklace they chose. I appreciated the comments. My wedding is a few months away, and I haven’t even had my first fitting first, so who knows which one I’ll choose.
