|Author||Bodybuilders um eine Studie ueber Bodybuilders zu teilnehmen?|
Bodybuilder Kollegen! Ich studiere jetz wissenschaftlich wie Leute (die nicht Bodybuilders sind) reagieren wenn sie einem unbekannten Bodybuilder begegnen. Ich bin ein Wettbewerb Bodybuilder (45 Jahren, 120 Kilos und 178 cm) aber auch ein Wissenschaftler (Ich arbeite and der Universität Jönköping in Schweden als Professor, Fach Psychologie). Bitte sehen sie meine Internet Adresse: www.geocities.com/bodybuilder_se, da können sie ein Paar Bilde von mir sehen und ueber mir etwa lehsen. Die Folgende ist in Englisch geschrieben weil ich Deutsch nicht wohl rede und schreibe :-) Ich bitte ihnen um Hilfe einige Fragen ueber ihre Erfahrungen als Bodybuilders im Alltage zu beantworten. Weil die Fragen in Englisch geschrieben sind können sie sie natuerlich auf Deutsch beantworten! Das Folgende in Englisch.... I have noted during many years of training that I am reacted to in many ways by different people, simply because I look the way I do after some 20 years of training. Such reactions, positive and negative, have intrigued me and I want to find out WHY people react this way. They usually usually do not react the same way to, for example, a golfer, a tennis player or a swimmer. I have gathered observations during a period of three years (2001-2004), and have already a fairly good idea of how and why many react when meeting, watching or interacting with a male bodybuilder. In order to better understand and see if my conclusions are in anyway correct, I need the help of other male bodybuilders. It would be much appreciated, if you could answer the following simple questions for me and then return your answers by e-mail (email@example.com, which is my private home e-mail address. Term is over and I work from home until August). If you have any questions please feel free to ask me. Also, if you are interested in the results of this study, let me know, and I will add you to a send-list and mail you a summary of what I have discovered. Replies sent in after July 5th I cannot include in this particular study, since I do have deadlines to consider. Note that answers given will be dealt with anonymously. Research ethics demand that data should not be able to be traced back to the information provider. Needless to say, I follow this to the letter! Answers given are always given in strict confidence. Please answer to the best of your ability. Here are the questions 1a) What is your age: 1b) What country do you live in? 1c) What is your height and weight: 1d) Do you compete, have competed or intend to compete in bodybuilding? 2a) Have children (no older than about 6 - 7 years of age) ever commented you or reacted to your appearance as a bodybuilder? How? 2b) Have pre-teens and early teens ever commented you or reacted to your appeareance as a bodybuilder? How? 2c) Have you ever felt that you have been treated offensively because you are a bodybuilder? How? 2d ) Has anyone ever tried to provoke you (wanting to pick a fight with you) because you are a bodybuilder? How and when? 2e) Has anyone, to your knowledge, ever abstained from provoking you, even avoided you, because of being a bodybuilder? How and when? 2f) When you pass another unfamiliar male bodybuilder in the street, on the beach, or spot a new member to your gym for the first time, also an advanced bodybuilder, do you try to impress him discretely by for example doing a few more reps, lift heavier than usual and/or trying to look your best, hiding your flaws as a bodybuilder? 2g) Have you experienced that people in general expect that there is a relationship between your physical size and the level of your intellect? 2h) Has anyone ever insulted you and you have suspected that such an insult is probably due to envy (they would like to be and look like you?). How and when? 2i) Have you because of your size and appearance ever caused a stir amongst people because they believed you to be someone famous (from a TV show, a DocuSoap, a sports event?) When? 2ja) Have women ever approached you wanting ”to feel” your body (by pinching, squeezing, caressing or touching) and/or have you experienced how they intentively try to ”bump into” you trying to make it look like a mistake, but you suspected it was everything but a mistake? Give examples if you can. 2jb) Have men ever approached you wanting ”to feel” your body (by pinching, squeezing, caressing or touching) and/or have you experienced how they intentively try to ”bump into” you trying to make it look like a mistake, but you suspected it was everything but a mistake? Give examples if you can. 2k) Have you ever been told outside of the gym and by strangers, in the most positive sense. that you look good and that your training effort is admired? Do you recall if there are certain groups of people who do this, or could just anyone spontaneously do it where you live? 2l) Is there any other response/reaction you remember particularly that you have not accounted for so far, that you think might be important in trying to understand how and why people, unknown to you, in everyday life react to male bodybuilders? Thank you for participating! Your answers will be very useful. Roland S.
