True, there aren't many choices to choose from - 8 numbers, specifically, but interestingly, about 50% of people will choose 37. I don't know why the brain works that way, but it just does.
I'm not a psychologist or anything, but if I was, I would have to say that those people that pick a number other than 37 are more free and independent thinkers. They like to go against the grain, and enjoy beating others at their own game. I think these type of people are more rebellious and can be outsiders, and be a bit cranky if pushed too far. For those people that pick 37, they just enjoy going with the flow, and not try to over-think things too much. I would also say that they're more easy to be manipulated and suggestable, and possibly like to be around people more. Just my 2 cents. But try it out on your family or friends and bug 'em out. If they get the number wrong, the worst that'll happen is that you just look dumb.
... fortunately my grandma picked 37 when I tried it on her.
I also chose 37 at first, but only because I wanted to just go with the flow, and didn't want to ruin the fun by analyzing it too much.

That's pretty interesting. I haven't heard that one before, but I'll try it out on some people. I wonder if it has anything to do with the subconscious mind thinking of six carrots, like in a diamond.
