Fears and phobias for certain animals such as snakes, rats and spiders are very common. Much more common than, for example, fear of rabbits or giraffes. Davey (1994) has argued that there is a link between disgust and animal fears. According to Davey, most invertebrates and some other small animals are perceived as being more disgusting because of either an association with disease and infection (e.g., rats and cockroaches) or because of their resemblance to mucus or faeces (e.g., slugs and eels). The disgust emotion has been linked to fear of small animals such as spiders. Individuals high in disgust propensity (i.e.,individuals who are more likely to feel disgusted) are believed to be more likely to fear these types of animals (van Overveld et al., 2006). The current (fictional) study investigated Davey’s proposal by looking at whether individuals higher in disgust propensity show greater fear of spiders than those with lower levels of disgust propensity. There were three groups of participants: a high disgust propensity, a moderate disgust propensity, and a low disgust propensity group. All participants completed a questionnaire to measure their level of spider fear. The researchers hypothesised that spider fear would be higher in the high disgust propensity group than the low disgust propensity group.
1) Outliers and data distribution: Are there any significant outliers in the data set and are the dependent variable data normally distributed? Explain and support your answer with appropriate statistics
2) Descriptive statistics: Report descriptive statistics that are appropriate for your chosen analysis in text and numbers (i.e., not in a graph or table)
3) Inferential statistics: Run an appropriate statistical analysis to test the researchers’ hypothesis and report the results and inferential statistics in the correct format
4) Follow-up tests: Report appropriate tests to follow-up the main analysis you have conducted. You can refer to descriptive statistics but do not report them again
5) Findings summary: Do the findings support the researchers’ hypothesis? Explain and support your answer. You can refer to results reported previously but do not report statistics again that you have already reported elsewhere
Scherer and Sagarin (2006) discovered that using mild swear words (e.g., “damn”) can increase the persuasiveness and perception of intensity of the speaker. First year students watched a videotaped speech about lowering US tuition fees in one of three randomly assigned conditions: swearing at the beginning of the speech, swearing at the end of the speech, or no swearing in the speech (control). After watching the speeches, questionnaire measures showed that participants that had watched a speech with swearing in showed more positive attitudes towards the topic discussed than those that did not. One potential limitation of Scherer and Sagarin’s study is that attitudes toward the topic were not measured before the speech, only afterwards. As a consequence, we do not know how much any differences in attitudes were down to changes in attitude due to the speech. In the current (fictional) study a group of researchers conducted a very similar.
