Do other people's votes influence your vote on polls and comparative discussions?

spiced spiced
When you're voting in an EF forum poll or comparative discussion, do you ever vote differently because of the way other people have voted?

I've found myself second-guessing my vote, and even changing it, when I've seen that the majority have picked something else. I actually wish other people's votes were hidden until I cast my vote, like I've seen on many other sites, because of that effect.

How about you? How often are you influenced by other people's votes?

I could not tell, not enough people have voted yet.

I don't normally look at the results of votes and polls. I just vote the way I feel about the subject being voted on.

It's important to me, I don't know about you guys!

EDIT: Whoops, I thought you meant a discussion on a toy and whether you'd buy the toy or not.

No, my opinions are mine alone, and I don't vote with the majority.

Nope, it never bothers me if I'm the only person voting for something.

No, I vote how I feel, even if I'm the only one with a different choice.

Nope! I ALWAYS vote for what I think is better (which is usually the unpopular opinion).

Never. It'd be kind of dishonest, in my opinion. My vote is always strictly based on my own real opinion/feelings or whatever. My vote isn't at all influenced by anyone else's. I just vote on how I feel, not how someone else does.

Sometimes, but the most amusing part of this poll is that for the election I ponify-ed "votes" to "double-ended dildos" so I was really confused for a moment.

I sometimes consider what other people vote, but I ultimately choose what answer goes best with my opinion.

My vote isn't influenced at the time I vote, but I enjoy seeing how other's voted. I especially enjoy reading the thoughtful responses some people give & THOSE comments might influence how I think about something after the fact. Sometimes people have a unique perspective that I hadn't considered and THAT can influence me in the future.

No. There have been a number of polls where I am the only one who voted in a specific response.

Others opinions open my mind to other possibilities an outlook. So yes, I do occasionally change my mind.

No. But after reading an explanation on why the person voted the way they did it made me wonder why I was so close minded as to not think of the other options.

Nope. I'm pretty confident in that regard.

Other people's votes never influence mine, but I do think it'd be more interesting if we saw the results only after voting ourselves.
