You will complete a number of simple tasks, together with other people,
with whom you will be connected via the internet.
First, all participants in the study will select personal "avatars" and
write short texts to introduce themselves.
Before beginning the tasks, you will spend 3 minutes with the other
people. During this time, you will be able to read and react to
each-other's brief introductions.
Specific instructions will follow.
Please enter your name
Could be your first name, nickname, or initials
Please select an avatar
This avatar will represent you during the group task, but will not be linked to any of your responses. Your choice of avatar will not be recorded or analyzed.
Please introduce yourself
Please write a paragraph in which you introduce yourself to the rest of the group.
Write something you would like to tell about yourself - anything you want to share.
Characters left: 400
Soon after connecting, you should be able to see the other people's descriptions.
You can read and react to the short introduction they wrote about themselves, by
clicking a "like" button, similar to the "like" button on Facebook ("favorite" on Twitter,
♥ in Tumblr and Instagram, etc.)
Even though your interaction is minimal, please try to form an impression of the
people in the group. Try to imagine them in real life - how they might look
or sound, what kind of people they are, how you would get along with them.
The task will last 3 minutes and is very important to the study, so please be attentive,
without switching pages, or doing unrelated tasks. Questions about the other people might follow.
If these instructions are clear, you can proceed to log in.
Please wait while you are being connected to the other participants in your group.
All participants are now connected and you are ready to proceed.
You can click "Like" if you have enjoyed somebody's description
