I would ask that people not take this test more than once, in
order to avoid skewing the statistics.

Also, would someone who is extremely wary of teleportation please
take the test and say what happens?   I do suspect the "test" to
be unfair towards those who don't believe in the information theory
of identity, but the only way I'm going to find out is if someone
wary of teleportation says what happened to him or her.

(There is also an issue about a soul-like entity.)
