What kind of people do data visualization?

What kind of people do #dataviz? These are the full results of a highly unscientific one-question survey asking: How would you describe yourself in one title? If forced to pick one (and you are being forced to pick one), which of the following job titles would you be MOST LIKELY to use to define yourself? If you're not a professional at any of these, but this is how you see yourself (e.g., you're a banker but you think of yourself as a "designer" and come to your data visualization froma design standpoint first), pick that category ("designer" in my example).

The link to the survey was shared via Twitter, Linkedln and Google+ and was RT'd and Fav'd a bit, resulting in some respondents outside my personal network. There were a total of 95 responses as of 12:00pm EDT, May 14, 2015. BeehiveMedia
