Second thought about the "Jewish mother" poll

I'm wondering whether I've got the basic factor (uses guilt as a major motivator) quite right. It's plausible that the real distinguishing trait is "uses guilt about hurting her feelings" is more exact.

If so, is it worth redoing the poll?

Minor note: Garrison Keillor's excruciating family skits have a mother who's presumably Scandinavian background/Lutheran who does the same thing.
