Short study on fighting and perceptions of formidability

Researcher

Posted 1:57 am, 11/17/2014

I'm a researcher at a university in Southern California studying men's violent intrasexual competition. For a few reasons, I thought readers of this forum might be interested in participating in some research on fighting and perceptions of formidability that will eventually be published in the psychological literature. First, you could see what psychological researchers are studying when it comes to men's violent competition, and you could see how they're studying it. Second, you could be represented in this research. Way too much research in psychology relies on 20-year-old undergraduates. That's fine for, say, semantic priming research, but research on men's fighting, strength, and perceptions of other's formidability shouldn't be comprised solely of college sophomores.


If you have about 5 minutes, consider taking this anonymous survey. https://csufullertonpsych.a...tJrIFtTcj3


When the data are analyzed, I'll post the results of the study here.
