Just Plain... Random!

We asked one hundred subjects to generate five single digit random numbers. Then we analyzed their ability to do so, as well as comparing genders and age groups, looking at a number of factors. Most of our results suggested that the numbers were random, but there were sufficient exceptions to prove otherwise. These exceptions were centred around intervals and repetition, meaning that though the digits themselves were random, the spaces between them were not.
