A Brief Study Investigating How we Form Opinions of others
Dr. Keon West
, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK
Brief Description of Research Project:
This study is under 5 minutes long.
Despite its brevity, its design allows me to tackle an important question about how we perceive others, particularly concerning romantic / sexual behaviour. All participants will
indicate their opinion about someone twice - (1) once after reading a profile description of them and (2) after receiving added information about them
. These data will then be analysed for significant patterns and may be submitted for publication to a peer-reviewed journal.
This study has been assessed as posing
no or minimal risk
to participants. Participants may feel some emotional discomfort while answering questions about judgements of others. However, participants (1) will be completely
no identifying information will be requested (2) are under
to take part and (3) may
withdraw at any time
without giving reason. The study should last less than 5
: No financial or academic award is offered for this study. However, it is very quick, very easy and perhaps enjoyable. Participants will also make an important contribution to our understanding of person perception and romantic behaviour.
Please note: if you have a concern about any aspect of your participation or any other queries please do raise this with the investigator.
