View Full Version : Wanted: Participants for an online psychology experiment

29-10-06, 17:02
Hello everybody. :wve:

I would really appreciate some participants to take part in my psychology test. It's very basic - basically, it's a three-part survey. Each part should take no longer than ten minutes to complete, and I will send them to you one at a time, either through PM or e-mail. Note: The survey does not have to be completed entirely tonight. I wanted to get it done by Wednesday, though.

The test involves video games, so I specifically looking for people who play them. Seeing as this is a Tomb Raider forum, I'm sure pretty much any one of you would qualify. ;)

One thing though; I need participants to be 18 or over. I'm not entirely sure, but I think I need parental permission if I survey anyone who is under 18, which would be a lot of hassle, so I'm just keeping it to over 18's.

I'm sorry I cannot give many details about the experiment; too much information would probably sway your answers, which I don't really want to happen. Naturally, I will tell you at the end what it's all about, of course!

So, anybody up for it? I would be really grateful! :)

Providing my answers can be anonymous, PM away :wve:

29-10-06, 17:08
Oh, yes, of course. Forgot to mention that! :D

All results will be anonymous, and probably just given a code (like 1a, 2b, whatever) to differentuate between them.

Anyway, thanks TLR! I'll be PM-ing when I have enough people. :)

29-10-06, 17:09
I'll do it :)

oh didnt see the age :(

[[I cant be bothered moving from my chair]]

29-10-06, 17:11
Sorry about that, I just want to be careful. I'd hate to get a load of results only to find out I can't use half of them. x.x

But thanks for being willing, anyway. :)

[EDIT] No, Jake, you will not have to move from the screen! ;) Although I may not be able to get it all done tonight. I'll try, though.

Count me out now i have to eat my tea and then watch a movie
Eeek sorry <3

29-10-06, 17:17
I'll do it. Although I not sure how long I'll be available this evening.

29-10-06, 17:22
It probably won't just be this evening. I'll send you PMs and you can get back to me with it as soon as possible. It's not nessecary that I complete it tonight. :)

29-10-06, 17:22
You can count me in. :)

29-10-06, 17:23
I would participate but if it is video games related, and since I have only played TR, I won't score much.

29-10-06, 17:29
Thanks, Thorn and Anubis. :)

Anubis, don't worry; it's not that sort of survey. I can't say exactly what I'm testing, but it really doesn't matter if you're a hard-core gamer or not!

29-10-06, 17:39
Out of curiosity who would actually know if we're 18 or not? Since it's anonymous does it really matter, couldn't people just pretend (granted they don't have their DOB in their profile)? I mean people have thought I was in my 20s... err... I mean, I'm really "18" can I participate? :D

29-10-06, 17:40
Count me in then :)

Well, if you say you're 18 on the survey, how am I to know otherwise? :whi:

29-10-06, 17:46
Well... I am therefore "18" and will be willing to participate :whi: :D

29-10-06, 17:47
Thank you! :D

29-10-06, 17:54
Going to send out the first part now; I still need more participants, however, so if you want to take part, please say! I'll send it out as soon as I see your post. :)

29-10-06, 17:55

29-10-06, 17:55
Are you going to wait for the PM feature to come back, or..? :)

Edit. It's already back :D

29-10-06, 17:57
It is back; I just got a PM through, anyway, so I assume it is. :D

Thanks, MiCkiZ88!
