What is your e-mail address or unique pseudonym?

We would prefer you use an email address so we can contact you, but you can use a pseudonym if you prefer. Either way, your scores and answers will not be made public. If you use one, please remember your pseudonym and use it again for subsequent tests, so we can compare scores before and after the Stoic week.
Whether you use a pseudonym or email please use the same response to this question (question 1) for every questionnaire. Thank you.
