Guys can you please fill in my survey, I'm really struggling to get enough participants. I would complete your survey in return and would be forever grateful. Here is the link: https://mmu.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bJJklhzmdKNGG3j

I was going to complete for you, but to be honest I have issues with your intro page. It's far too complicated for me to understand what your research question is - I don't know what dark triad traits and big five personality variables are which is kind of off putting for someone not working in the field.

More importantly however, I couldn't see anything about having ethical approval for the study. It doesn't have any assurances about my information being kept anonymous and doesn't tell me who is going to be able to have access to my data. What I'm trying to say is there's nothing here about informed consent.

I would suggest reviewing the information you are giving to people which might help your response rate.

Thank you for this. However, if you have read it correctly, everything is explained in the intro page and at the debrief after the survey. I wouldn't be able to gather data without ethical approval, so I clearly do have an ethical approval for the study. Further, I have provided my email and whole section on how data will be stored and used. If anyone wanted withdraw their data they are allowed to do so. There is also email of ethics committee member if someone has issues with my project. Thank you though for your comment.

Hey wasn't trying to cause offence, just highlighting why some might be put off doing your study.... and I didn't mean to imply you didn't have ethical approval (I was sure you would have). Just that you should make sure that the information is clearly available on the first page - I didn't see the debrief page at the end as the questions I had meant I wasn't comfortable participating in the study. Contact details are great - But in my experience no one bothers to contact you unless they're really enthusiastic about the study.

Best of luck with it!
