During your time at Georgetown, you might have participated in a psychology study conducted in our lab. We have now analyzed the data related to that study, and are interested in collecting just a few more pieces of information from those who participated so that we can expand upon our findings. If you have been recontacted and asked to complete a survey, you can access the survey here. We appreciate your help and dedication to our research! 

Collective Reasoning Study:

We are currently recruiting for a two-part study. Please see below for further information and email to participate! We look forward to hearing from you.

Individual and collective reasoning

We are studying how groups of people complete a collection of reasoning and problem solving tasks. You will be asked to complete tasks both individually and in a three-person team. The information gained from this study will help us better understand how groups of people solve complex problems.

Participation involves completing an online questionnaire (1 hour - you can complete this at home) and then coming to Georgetown University campus for 2.5 hours to complete a series of surveys and activities.

You can be paid in cash at a rate of $10/hour, or in SONA credit for eligible classes.
