Default Ask any human to choice a number between 0 - 0xFFFFFFFF

Hi.
Consider some software asking different users for a hexadecimal number
between 0 - 0xFFFFFFFF.
Is there any done research in statistical (and psychological) field on
what numbers used more often and less often, except of obvious numbers
like 0x11111111, 0x12345678, et cetera.

At least, it wouldn't make up a good PRNG. =)
