1. Do you think that your answers  are similar or different from most Americans? In what ways are they similar, and different?  I would think quite similar.  Most Americans have the same idea of what they want from art.  However, I think because I have had a chance to learn more about art than the average American I have to ability to make different associations and answers than most.

2. Which questions do you think  would be the most helpful if  one was using market research to design new paintings for sale? What questions would you ask differently, or leave out entirely?  The most important questions are price range, favorite colors, paint consistency, and size.  Just with those elements you could paint a highly marketable piece of art.  I do think the Tax question was irrelevant as well as the  appearance question.

3. Would this work? Why or why not? 
In some ways yes I believe so. You have generally what the public wants out of a picture, but I also believe that you have to take a lot of these answers out of context and apply them in different ways rather than blending each topic together.
