You are invited to take part in a research project about perceptions of other people. In particular, we are interested in investigating how people perceive the personality of others based on written descriptions. The study is being conducted by Kaila Putter, who is supervised by Dr Amanda Krause. This project will contribute to Ms Putter’s Bachelor of Psychological Science Honours project at James Cook University. This study has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee (ID: H8370).
