    Default Desperate student!

    Hi guys!

    I'm in my third year of a psychology degree and desperately trying to get participants for my study. I still need lots of people so would really, really appreciate it if anyone would mind sparing ten mins to do it. The only requirement is that you own a smartphone and it's just three simple questionnaires. It doesn't matter how often you use it or which type of smartphone you own. It would be really, really appreciated!

    Thanks so much!

    The initial page of your "survey" is this: Furthermore, "three simple questionnaires" is not the same as three simple questions.

    The effect of smartphones on public health

    Thank you for choosing to take part in this survey. The aim of the research is to investigate how often we use our smartphones and what possible clinical implications overuse of smartphones may have in our society. To participate in the study you must own a smartphone and will be required to complete three components during the survey. The first component measures how often and for what reasons you use your smartphone. The second part is a personality questionnaire which measures authority, self-sufficiency, superiority, exhibitionism, exploitativeness, vanity and entitlement. The third and final section is a personality measure. The objective is to investigate whether or not there is a link between the subsections of personality and smartphone addiction. The experiment should take no longer than fifteen minutes to complete. To ensure confidentiality, your data will be anonymous and only reported as group data; so there will be no identifying information. However you have until December 21st 2013 to withdraw your data from the study for any reason by emailing the principal investigator at 100146916@unimail.derby.ac.uk. In order to identify your data, but keep anonymity, you will need to enter a unique code below. This code must be made up of the first and second initials of your surname, the last three digits of your phone number and your year of birth. For example, John Smith, 07000222333, born in 1990 would be SM3331990

    * Required
