I received the following email from a graduate student at SUNY-Stony Brook:
A team of researchers from Stony Brook University have asked us to help them study the role that emotion plays in politics. I have completed the survey myself, and it only took me a few minutes to finish. The survey is completely anonymous.

If you choose to post it, please let me know, and please discourage your readers from discussing the content of the survey by disabling the comment section on the post. It could bias my results if people go into it with specific expectations about the study.
Thanks so much for your consideration!

The link is legit, though it took me about 10 minutes to complete it. On top of that, it wasn’t as cool as the ideology quizzes I link to, or the surveys Michelangelo occasionally conducts. The political scientists are trying to find out why Democrats and Republicans don’t like each other, so don’t expect any nuance or to learn anything new.
All the same, take the survey. Because science!
