victims erm... participants needed!

Hello all,

Many of you know I am doing a degree in psychology - as a part of my cognitive psyche course I have to do a "real" experiment investigating the way people think about a sequence of events.

So I made a little online game and would be very grateful if you all gave it a go:
www.mewitsend.org

It takes about 5 minutes to complete and is just very silly – plus it takes NO personal info whatsoever! Completely anonymous!

Why am I releasing it to the world?
Well, the claims of most psychological experiments have less scientific validity than a cosmetic company's claims about the effectiveness of their anti-wrinkle creams. Mainly due to the fact that most psyche experiments use only 6-24 participants. Clinical psychologists also have a tendency to be naval gazing and complain endlessly of how they can’t reach participants to get real evidence. I don’t believe this is true and want to show them that they can get some REAL numbers if only they apply a little creativity. [Evil me]

So if you can all go to mewitsend.org and give it a go that would be GREAT! Even better if you then got all your friends to do it too!

For legal/permission reasons I am not permitted to use under 16 year olds – If you press the “I am under 16” button - the site will grab your IP and then block you from going any further - so click it AFTER you have taken it if you absolutely must! lol


THANKS!

PS. Please, please, please, please forward this to all you know and beg them to give it a go too!
