3.2 Experiment 1
3.2.1 All of the 45 participants watched
the 11 clips of car accidents. After
every accident clip they were given
a questionnaire to fill out which
included the leading/critical

hit, bumped, collided,

3.3 Experiment 2
3.3.1 150 participants watched a
one minutes clip full of 4
second clips on car accidents.
220.127.116.11 The participants were split into 3 groups,
those with the verb 'smashed' in their
leading question, those with the verb 'hit'
as their verb and a control group which
had no speed question.
This occurred instantly after watching the one minute clip.
18.104.22.168.1 A week later the participants were asked if they saw

The controlled group had neither verb.
Remember the order of 16, 7, 6 for those who responded with yes.There are 50 participants in each group, take away how many said yes and you have however many said no. Simple way to remember this table.
The more 'violent' the word, the higher the speed.
I haven't even tried to remember the whole of this table. Instead, I remember the smashed average spead and the contacted for statistics to compare.
5.3 Type of Data
The majority of the data gathered within this study is quantitiative data.
The only qualitative data that could be found will be the other questions that were within the questionnaire, but as these were not relevant to the study, there is no qualitative data.
6 IMPORTANCIA DE LA METODOLOGÍA EN LA PSICOLOGÍA.
6.2 1.- La investigación nos ayuda a mejorar el estudio porque nos permite establecer contacto
con la realidad a fin de que la conozcamos mejor. 2.- Estimula el pensamiento crítico y la creatividad.
