Study shows iPhone users are deviant egomaniacs

A recent study by Retrevo has some really funny conclusions regarding the personalities of BlackBerry versus iPhone users.

The study reveals the following:

  • Retrevo asked, “What makes a person most attractive to you?” iPhone owners preferred cool gadgets over a college degree three to one.
  • One in three iPhone owners has texted or emailed their significant other to break up.
  • One in three iPhone owners say that, if their partner had out-of-date gadgets, it would be a turnoff.
  • One in five iPhone owners admits to frequently watching “adult material” on their iPhones. (Twice as many as BlackBerry owners).
  • One in four iPhone users has broken up with their partner because that person spent too much time on their mobile device.

The study also notes that “Compared with other cell phone users, iPhone owners are more likely to see themselves as media buffs, extroverts, and intellectuals,” with 40% of iPhone users claiming to be “intellectual,” and only 36% of Blackberry users saying the same.

    The average iPhone user is probably younger than the average BlackBerry user because iPhones are hipper. A lot of those items are more common in younger people than in older people.

    Not that surprising.

    This is the worst analysis of a study I have ever seen. It doesn’t compare any results. For every item, it says that iPhone users who do those things are in the minority, i.e. “one in 3,” “one in four,” and “one in five. It doesn’t say how many Blackberry users do those things – it could be the majority of Blackberry users for all I know, i.e. 2 out of 3, 3 out of 5, etcetera.

    And the most amusing part was the last paragraph – I guess it’s nice that Blackberry users are honest enough to admit they are probably not as intellectual as iPhone users. But that hardly seems something to brag about.
