Due to popular demand, I have decided to publish the results of each weekly poll. The results are sometimes intriguing, sometimes shocking...but always entertaining (who would have guessed that 35% of YouPlayers would choose to be a dolphin)...

To kick us off, here are the results for a selection of polls dating back from the previous two months. What insights will they reveal? Satisfy this particularly human impulse to delve into the minutiae of other people's lives, wishes and favourite things..enjoy!

A huge 55% of voters would choose to become either a bird or a dolphin. The different (human) values that we associate with animals is fascinating.

In summary then, the typical YouPlayer could be described as a casually dressed dolphin who likes maths, unicorns, comedy movies and football; is seeking happiness and a great rock n'roll song, and would like to lose some weight and then travel through time.

What do you think?

That's great, but I do wish you'd give an extra alternate option in each poll: "None of the above". That would particularly apply in polls like the present one, wherein I feel most people wouldn't wish to be involved in any of the Tv shows mentioned. I think you'd also increase the number of people who poll, if you add my suggested choice. Regards Clem F

G'day Jessie, I think ur conclusion conjures up the mental image of a pod of tee-shirt n thongs clad dolphins bopping to The Unicorns rock group while playing Suduko at the internet cafe. Oi!...lol
