When you set out to read a fictional story (fan or pro), regardless of genre, do you expect it will require suspension of disbelief within the story (i.e. not disbelief in things like supernatural occurrences or the like, but believing character motivations just because the writer says they are what they are, etc)?

Yes, always. Writers write from their own minds, and it is inevitable that they will take logical shortcuts they think are obvious (but other people might not).
1(1.3%)
To some extent. You prefer clarity of thought, but you recognise it's not possible for writers to always bear in mind that what is self-explanatory to them might not be that way to other people.
31(41.3%)
No. You expect stories to have solid internal logic that anyone could follow, not just people who think like the writer.
28(37.3%)
It varies depending on what kind of story it is.
14(18.7%)
Something else.
