:: Which presentation style is better? ::
  Ralph Lengler, Andrew vande Moere
University of Sydney
  This pilot study is investigating how to create meaning with visual means. For this purpose you will be shown 2 presentations, one presented using Slideware (e.g. Powerpoint) and then 'Prezi', a new presentation technology which takes up the ideas of the 'zoomable user interface' and the 'infinite canvas'. If you don't understand those two terms, no worries, you will, when you have completed the study! It will take about 30 minutes to complete the experiment. The study is fun & it will probably improve your presentation skills as well!

  In this experiment stimuli consist of 2 two-digit Arabic numbers, which appear diagonally on the center of a white browser window. The pairs vary only in their numerical values but have constant physical black Arial font. The task will start with an instruction, which asks participants to indicate which number is larger, by pressing the up arrow-key with the middle finger and the down arrow-key with the index finger of the dominant hand. The experiment is preceded by a training session, which allows subjects to complete 12 trials to familiarize themselves with the comparison required and the timing of the task. The experiment consists of 360 trials in 2 parts with a self-paced break. Participants are asked to respond as quickly as possible but to take care to avoid errors. Each trial is ended with the participant’s response. The whole experiment will take about 20 minutes, but may be shorter or longer based on reaction times.

:: The Relationship between Childhood Events and Adult Problem Solving Skills ::
  Michael Dimambro
University of Worcester
  This study is concerned with the how an individual’s childhood affects their ability to problem solve as adults. Previous studies have found a link between an unstable childhood and a reduced performance in problem solving, however, a more recent study (Mittal et al., 2015) has found a link that suggests that an unstable childhood, although reducing performance on most aspects of problem solving skills can actually make the person improve on a specific type of problem solving– i.e cognitive shifting, which is the ability to switch between different mental tasks. This result was only found when these individuals were in unstable environments. Therefore, this study is exploring whether a link exists between an unstable childhood and various aspects of problem solving skills.

:: Where’s My Mind? A Mobile App Study for Android Phone Users ::
  Jessica R. Andrews-Hanna & Joanna J. Arch
University of Colorado, Boulder
  Do you ever wonder what you’re thinking about? Do you ever find yourself lost in thought? Do your thoughts make you feel inspired? Anxious? Happy? Do you wish you could gain a better sense of your thoughts and see how they compare to others’? Welcome to Where’s My Mind?, an app that helps you answer these questions by allowing you to track your thoughts at random moments throughout the day. By using this app, you will also help make possible the development of a large international database of internal thinking. This database will help foster important future scientific research. How does this app work? This app is divided into 4 parts. Each part is described below. • Part 1 will ask some basic questions about you (such as the country you live in), and when you wake up and go to bed (which tells the app when to track your thoughts). This part will take about 3 minutes. • Part 2 will ask you questions about your beliefs, feelings, and goals. This part will take about 3-5 minutes. • Part 3 will help you track your thoughts over multiple days. The app will send a notification to your device at 4 random times each day during waking hours, helping you to record the nature of your thoughts and activities immediately prior to receiving the notification. Responding to a notification takes only 1-2 minutes. • Part 4. After responding to 40 notifications, you will have the opportunity to view your thought report and compare your thoughts to those of other users. You can choose to see graphs displaying what kinds of things you typically think about, whether you find your thoughts to be helpful or unhelpful, how often your thoughts are focused on-task versus off-task, and more! Your graphs will be updated as you continue to use the app and as the database grows.
for Android users only! Download of app required!

The study will also examine the effect of gender, age, and sexual orientation on language correlated with personality traits. It is expected that usage of language variables in the profile texts will be found to correlate with personality traits, that there will be some differences in mean personality traits across the cultures that will be reflected in language differences.
