Metaphors and mountaineering

Hi! This post is for everyone who likes mountaineering or is a mountaineer. Anyway, I am currently conducting a research in linguistics about how usage of certain metaphors can influence people's reasoning about different topics. In my case, it's the usage of metaphors related to war in the context of mountaineering (for example, conquering a mountain). I've already done the quantitative part of the research with participants (who didn't know the purpose of the study), but what I'm lacking are qualitative results. If you are interested, please fill out this google form (it shouldn't take more than 5 minutes of your time) to help me get my Master's degree. Everything is explained in more detail in the form! Thank you so much in advance for helping me advance the world's linguistic knowledge :)

I have already posted this, but I decided to try again to see if I can get more responses :) .. btw, for anyone interested, I work as a copywriter for a company that sells, among other sports, various mountaineering trips - that's how I got interested in this topic. If you have more questions about that or about linguistics, feel free to start some kind of a discussion. It wasn't my intention to just "spam" the forum and leave :D
