Design a psychological experiment to investigate one of the following claims. Be sure to designate your independent and dependent variable(s), as well as variables to be ‘controlled’ – choose among the following hypotheses; you are simply proposing how you would go about testing one of these statements NOT the collection of data so there is no need to speak of actual findings. Your essay should, in other words, propose a design for investigating one of the following hypotheses, specifying the measurement tools you will rely on, and why you have chosen these tools? In other words, write and Introduction and a Method section only, not the Results or Discussion. But anticipate the results and discussion in your Intro and Method. Your seminar leader will be your guide.
