    For the Mind X study, how long does it take to load? On my phone, it just shows a cog that keeps spinning round and doesn't start. It seems its either not compatible with my phone or it takes long to load.

    I've just done a survey where I got asked if I were petite bourgeousie.

    If I don't know what petite bourgeousie is without googling it, is that a yes or a no?

    According to Prolific the new site updates the studies tab once per minute.. have seen it in the corner of my eye sometimes with new studies but I don't seem to catch them quickly enough
