Cultural questionnaire

Hi everyone!

I am a french man, 22, studying engineering near Paris. I am currently working on a little study for my english class with a few friends, the purpose is to compare Japanese culture with French culture. In order to do so, we created a little questionnaire aimed at Japanese people (18 short questions) that will make us able to compare some cultural aspects from both sides.

Here is a link to the questionnaire (-5min) : http://goo.gl/H6e254

Thanks in advance, I really appreciate your help !

I can keep you updated, just let me know if you want me to ;)

A little constructive criticism.

I can't understand some of the questions.
* For example, you have one after 2 gift questions, and it only says "To whom?"
* Another example is when you asked what table manners (these are good things we have chosen to accept in society) should people avoid. Huh? If it's a manner, why should anyone consciously avoid it?
*And, what is the question about personal space for?

Also, your only demographic is age. I think knowing gender is also important.

If this is geared towards Japanese people, good luck, because not many will be able or willing to read it in English. Also, you won't know who the respondents are on an anonymous forum that caters largely to non-Japanese.
