This is in response to the Letter to the Editor
We are grateful for the constructive comments and interest shown in the results of our study.1 The authors of letter to editor paid attention to the various demographic factors associated with obesity.2
The aim of our study was to analyse possible relationship between the body image and perseverance. The analysing perseverance variables: the number of solved tasks and time spent on tasks did not differ statistically due to the sex, age or education of the respondents. The detailed data of the included participants are shown in Table 1.
Table 1 The Characteristics Of Individuals Included To The Study
The results presented in the article were preliminary and provided the basis for continuing the research. In our next study we will eliminate the weaknesses of the test, such as declaring body weight and height, and apply a multidimensional scale of the body image. We will also collect more complete sociodemographic data. In this way we can perform advanced statistical analyses, including regression analysis. In my opinion, intercultural research may also be interesting. The Simple Maze Test is a tool, which will be available soon for free use online. We encourage all interested to cooperate in this project.
