This Saturday we have a 6 hour., yes 6 HOUR! tutorial on psychological research methods. I've taken Friday afternoon off work to give myself a top up of mental energy reserves, it sounds as though I'm going to need it. It does sound as though it might be quite fun though, I'm rather hoping I get to be in the participant group and have vigorous discussion about something like "people should be able to drive 4x4s without penalty" or "men shouldn't be allowed to buy bras for their women". Meanwhile the 'researchers' have to count how many times people interrupt, and whether men interrupt more than women, and whether they do it in different ways or use hand gestures (!?).
I found this picture while I was randomly looking through my photos for something else, and reckoned I could create some tenuous link to the post topic..
