This study will include three parts and should be presented in a 2 page paper in RTF or PDF format.
To begin, consider a topic related to human psychology that you may be interested in. Based on your topic, you will describe the problem and your hypothesis, choose a research method, and use that method to develop findings.
1. Develop the Topic and Hypothesis
In choosing your topic, consider something simple and easy to observe, and something relevant to your personal or professional life. Some examples include:
- The emotional reaction to viewing certain color combinations in art or design.
- The changes in a child’s behavior related to toys, food, and other normal stimuli.
- An individual’s current personality based on his/her history (psychological, social, physical).
Your study should include a hypothesis surrounding the topic: your expectation of what the findings will be. For example, in dealing with color, you might form a hypothesis that designs that are over 50% red or orange make viewers feel anxious.
In your paper, be sure to state your topic and your hypothesis clearly.
