Hey, Smarties!! Lend Me Those Brains For A Sec?

Hey, All You Brainiacs ~

I am a graduate student presently piloting the next study for my dissertation. I am in need of data from all kinds of people in all walks of life, but for this particular study, I need an unusually large pilot sample (details available upon request).

I really, really could use your help for a sec. Would you be willing to contribute to my research by taking a short survey?

My UCSD HRPP-IRB Project # is 100557, and my UCSD-approved recruitment text is as follows:

Researchers from University of California at San Diego are collecting information for a future study that will examine the ways that various differences between people may or may not be related to differences in their thoughts and feelings.

Internet message board users have an opportunity to help scientists understand the ways that people from diverse walks of life experience and display their emotions.

It is our hope that this work could help those from many populations by clarifying the unique needs of various communities, particularly in medical settings.

If you are over the age of 18, will you help us with our research?

On average, this survey takes between 5 and 8 minutes to complete.

Your answers will help us immensely, and we greatly appreciate your time and willingness to assist with this research. Thank you in advance!

If you are over the age of 18 and volunteer to take this survey, please follow this link: http://socialcognition.ucsd.edu/cs/

Survey Taken.

I did took the survey, however one thing I notice is that mostly questions ask about our emotional need to cry synchronized with the " period data". I am not very emotional person, when I have my period, I do not become more emotional or cry, I can be more angry and maybe a bit aggressive, even thought I hold on my horses... so mostly your data will not fit well with my case. I also don't take pills, I have a sub-dermal implant, that I replace every 3 years so I don't get pregnant.
