Last names- cont'd

So in class today we were talking about surveys and wording and a bunch of other psychological stuff. One example caught my attention. While President Clinton was in office they did an approval rating of the First Lady. When they ran the poll with Hillary Clinton they got much higher approval ratings than when they ran the poll with Hillary Rodham Clinton. Her maiden name made a significant difference. hmmm.....

  1. I took my husband's last name because I didn't really like my last name. It was easy to make lame jokes about it and my initials spelled SAP. Almost 10 years later, poeple still call me by my old last name & sometimes I even sign it by accident.
