New survey about Emotion Recognition Ability
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I am a research master student in Linguistics at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, and I need you for a research project I am conducting for my thesis.
Could I ask you to participate in this fun research on how people are able to infer the emotional state of their interlocutor? It is a follow-up of a survey in which participants were asked to guess (+ rate the intensity of) the emotion displayed by an actress in a couple of short video-recordings in English. In the present version, the video recordings have been replaced by audio-recordings, which might render the task more difficult.
We are looking for both native and nonnative speakers of English; all levels of proficiency are welcome.
Please do *NOT* participate in the present survey if you have already filled in the previous version of this questionnaire some weeks/months ago (you would recognize the first page)

Many thanks in advance for participating in this research project that I am conducting under Prof. Jean-Marc Dewaele's supervision (Birkbeck College, University of London).
PS: Do not hesitate to share this, also with nonlinguists! :)
