How "Barnabas" are you?

Samantha Lienhard is conducting a survey about "audience attitudes towards fictional villains," and the first on the list is none other than BARNABAS COLLINS. Linehard is interested in finding out how audiences feel about a very specific moment in the character's history: The time he kidnapped MAGGIE EVANS and kept her lock in his basement for several months, eventually driving her mad.

Now, this isn't one of those Facebook quizzes that will spit out a funny "badge" for you to share with your friends. This is an empathy test, of sorts. Think of it as an online version of the Voight-Kampff test from BLADE RUNNER, only there are no right or wrong answers (and nobody much cares if you're a Replicant.)

Also part of the survey are questions about Raistlin Majere from the DRAGONLANCE series, Lord Voldemort and a few others. The survey is constructed to allow you to skip the characters you're not familiar with.

What are you waiting for? GO TAKE THE SURVEY!

Her definitions of "short-term goals" and "long-term goas" seem totally backward to me.

It still makes perfect sense to me, but now that you've said that, I can see where you're coming from. I've made a note of it as a possible point of confusion/disagreement.
