Has anyone done any research on which numbers from 1 to 6 are most often selected by a spectator when asked to select a number from 1 to 6?

Are there any statistics regarding which number is most often selected and what percentage of the time a spectator will select a particular number?

Thank you for your replies.

As far as I know, there is no *scientific* research on this topic (and I am familiar with the research on the so called "Blue seven phenomenon" on the question which digit from 0 to 9 is selected most often).

However, you might be interested in the paper by Nicholas Christenfeld: Choices from Identical Options
