Well, if the fields are optional, then you're offering the user the option to NOT to fill some info. As a result, you have a zero data field. In this case, you face the issue of how to handle this. While Adit Gupta's links are really nice and informative (and I recommend you to check them out for ideas, as well as this one), your case is very different. ...

I think one of the best ways to handle it is to provide a delightful message to the user along with encouraging him to take the next step. This article on Tympanus can give some more clarity on how to handle empty states. Also, check out this interesting page showcasing how apps and websites handle empty states - Empty States

I would suggest to include (y/n) in the question itself, like this: Do you wear glasses? (y/n): If user enters a wrong answer, just display back the same question again. I believe this will be self-explanatory: Do you wear glasses? (y/n):5 Do you wear glasses? (y/n): .. What's your height? (cm):172

I agree with Paul. If you have chosen CLI, then I guess your users understand what should be entered. But manual or typo errors will occur. Humans make mistakes. Even for boolean inputs "yes" may not be accepted in place of "y". This scenario can extend to integers as well, where user might type a comma instead of a dot. The UI should let the user handle ...

I'm still not totally clear on whether you want a term for the field itself ('desired ...

The fewer words the better, and no words at all are better than negative words. Don't say why you think there might be a problem, or even that you think there is likely to be a problem. Instead just make it easy for them to contact you in the event that they do happen to come across a problem. I quite liked an experience I had recently at surfdome where it ...

One option that avoids finding an acceptable label for “other” has not been mentioned yet: You can use a linear scale, e.g. a slider, with three or five states, the outermost ones being ♂/male/man and ♀/female/woman. You cannot easily cover “undisclosed” or the like this way, though. Sexuality, if ever asked for, should be done in a similar way, but ...

This would be my suggestion. It certainly doesn't cover Facebook's 58 genders, but is less simplistic than male/female. For sex: Male Female Intersex Undetermined For gender: Man Woman Transgender Questioning Not Applicable Notice 'male' versus 'man' and 'female' versus 'woman'. This is because gender and sex are not the same. As stated ...
