Which tribe do you belong to?

After reading this article and looking at this page, I was surprised to learn that I'm old, poor, watch a lot of television, and have very little interest in technology.

What do you think, does the postcode search give an accurate description of your area?

And for a place that claims to be 'A Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Learning' you'd think they'd be able to spell!!!! 8O

if this postcode is in England, Scotland or Wales and you believe it to be correct then please let use know

The E-Society classification currently does not cover Northern Ireland, however, if this is a residential postcode in England, Scotland or Wales then please let use know which group you think it should be in [link]

You'd think it would, after all, they've spelt 'special' the way we pronounce it ;)

An interesting exercise....they do not have my home post code listed, which covers Aldershot, Farnborough, Camberley, Pirbright and Guildford.

Neither do they hold my work post code, which is central London covering Saint Pauls Cathedral and the Bank of England.

What a load of w**k. I put my postcode in and it told me I was in Cable TV heartland?.

I live in 933,000 acres of Forest, since when did the wild ponies and other animals have cable tv!!!!

Apparently I live somewhere similar to Hull, but as I have one neighbour 50 yards to my right and the one on my left is 3 1/2 miles away, Cameron is my MP and not that fat cnut Two Shags, that cannot be so. Indeed, I would go so far as to say it was b0ll0x.

As for reading computer magazines, get a life!

I just put in my new address from september....

The ‘E – unengaged’ are typically groups that do not have access to electronic communications or technologies. Most are too old, too poor or too poorly educated to be able to access them, and instead traditionally rely upon personal contacts they trust for advice. Within this Group there are low levels of literacy and many people do not feel that their life outcomes are much subject to their own decisions. Within this group there is a very low level of ownership of personal computers, very little access to them at work and little ambition to master the skills necessary to take advantage of information technologies. Unsurprisingly, these people have a very low level of using email at any location (home, work and other locations) or participating in other on-line activities.

Members of this Group tend to live in the poorer areas of traditional mining and manufacturing towns and to have conservative social attitudes. A high proportion of the Group is made up of elderly people, many of whom live in social housing or sheltered accommodation.
My bold... how the fcuk did they know I was moving in? :D

It's quite interesting as it only works on the first part of the postcode, which for me covers a large area of council estates, council housing and areas of social deprivation. My more enclosed area however is far more upmarket and has a high student and working families population. So basically the resolution of this study isn't high enough

My post code classification came up as "Technologically engaged, cohesive self abusers and late nesters"
 
#13
Suppoedly I'm in

"A : E-unengaged and type A05 : Too old to be bothered"

Interesting being mid 20's, owning 3 computers and broadband....hmmm think they have it wrong there.

Damn

I was group D:E and the explanation was exactly me.

The nearest similar areas to me including at number 1 CM20 - which was where I lived a couple of years ago and two other postcodes I have had in the last 5 years (Liverpool & Birmingham ones)

That is freaky how correct they were with me.

How bizarre, when they messed everybody else's up
