    Calling all members: I could use your help.

    Hello everyone!

    I would like to begin by saying that I have received permission from Bumper to post this.

    My name is Emily Karakis. I am an active member on the forum. I am also a senior psychology student at the University of Akron. I have the opportunity to conduct a research project that I designed this year and I am looking for participants.

    I am examining men's expression of emotions and the way that it affects relationship satisfaction. The study is completed online. It consists of 96 questions and is expected to take between 30 and 45 minutes to complete at your convenience.

    In exchange for your participation you will have the opportunity at the end of the survey to enter your name and e-mail address to be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a $100 Best Buy gift card. The winner will be notified at the conclusion of my study (March/April 2011). This is completely optional.

    Answers to the questions and your contact information will be stored separate from each other in password protected computer files. All answers will be anonymous and contact information will remain confidential.

    I am asking that participants be males over the age of 18 and in some sort of romantic relationship.

    If you are interested in participating and/or would like more information, please private message me.

    I would really appreciate your participation in this study. Conducting my own study is something I have always wanted to do and I can't do it without everyone's help.

    Thank You!
    -Emily

    This study has been reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board at the University of Akron. I am working under the supervision of Dr. Ronald Levant, levant@uakron.edu)

    Just for the other members, I did it, there doesn't appear to be anything sinister at work. All the contact info for the professor and stuff checks out, you can research it too. You don't need to give up any personal info unless you want to get registered for the drawing.

    Just thought I would throw that out there, as I think as a community we usually do a good job in helping our members out when they ask.

    A romantic relationship? What's that? Seriously though, I wish you the best in your research project.

    It's not what you go thru in life, but how well you go thru it.

    Everyone,
    Thank you so much for all of your help! I really do appreciate it. Getting enough participants to make the statistical analysis work isn't easy. Especially in a study like mine when I cannot necessarily use the usual study population (introduction to psychology kids) because I need men who tend to hold more traditional male values. What better place then a pro-2A forum .

    I didn't think Marines were allowed to have feelings. I thought if you were supposed to have something The Corps would issue it to you. :)

    I know, I had to make sure my small segment of the population was represented.

    enk5,
    will the 'results' of your study/survey/research be made availiable when it's completed and/or published?

    I have not participated yet but I will be when my office clears out a little ;)
