I can't really tell what's happening, I can only guess, but @PetrusQuber are you sure the data will not suffer from different LL cases that adds a pretty randomly distributed times to the total time? Wouldn't it be better to only ask to measure the F2L time for those of us who use CFOP?
(please don't be mad at me if I'm totally misunderstood the entire thing).

I really have no idea, I’m
a - not the person doing the experiment, we
may have completely misunderstood what
its about
b - not the person who figured out what he is
testing. I PMed @WoowyBaby, and he told
me what Mr.Roux86 was doing

Attached below is a survey (link) that I am trying to use to find out more about how different types of scrambles work on the 3x3 puzzle. By participating, you will be contributing to cubing by helping me to find an answer to my question. Sadly, in order to make sure you aren’t trying to solve differently, I cannot tell you what is happening behind the scenes of this experiment, at least not now. The result of this research project will be released eventually, just not today. If you would like, there is also a chance to win $20 to anyone who participates. Please consider helping me out, I would greatly appreciate it, and you might just help advance times in cubing even farther.

Thank you.
Too anybody who asked me questions about this, I'm sorry I did not answer. I rarely check this site, but I am processing all my data, and plan to release the results sometime soon. Thank you to everyone who showed interest, the amount of data I collected was insane and I can't thank you all enough. Thanks to the guy who found out what this experiment was about (it really isn't hard) hopefully he was able to answer the common question I got asked.

The work is done!
I made a new thread about this, you check it out to see what this thing was all about.
