Individual Differences in Responses to Emotional Encounters
- Participant Information
This research study examines how individual differences, such as personality and self perceptions, relate to the responses people have when recalling an emotional encounter with
someone close (e.g., good friend, romantic partner, or family member).
If you decide to participate you will be asked to complete questions about your personality,
your self-perceptions, and your general health and well-being. You will also be asked to
recall and write about an emotional encounter you had with someone close.
The study will
take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete, although individual completion times may
vary depending on your computer system.
Your responses will be anonymous, and the numerical data you provide will be aggregated
with that of other respondents, to give the researcher an idea about general trends, rather than
individuals. Your data may also be used by the researchers for subsequent studies, and if used
will remain anonymous.
For participating you will be awarded 2 participation credits through the ORPS if
you are an eligible University of Sheffield Psychology student
