Participant Information and Consent Form
Thank you for your interest in this kinship and friendship study.
The purpose of this study is to explore whether taking decisions concerning your adult relatives requires you to use less mental effort than decisions concerning your adult friends. To do this we will ask you to take a series of decisions concerning your relatives and friends.
In the first instance, you will be asked a series of questions concerning your friends and relatives. Following this you will be asked to complete a set of simple decision tasks which relate to moral dilemmas. When answering questions about your relatives you can use relatives who are related to you genetically or by marriage. However, when answering any question please make sure you only use ADULT friends or relatives, that is, those over 18 years of age. Following these tasks you will be asked for some simple demographic information about yourself and some information regarding the nature of the relationships you have described.
The study will take about 15 minutes to complete and on completion you will have the opportunity to enter into a lottery to attempt to win one of three Amazon vouchers.
Due to the nature of the data we are collecting it is important that you complete this survey in one sitting so please only begin it when you have time to complete it.
Thanks for your time.
