The Effects of Social Media on Interpersonal Comparison

I hope this is okay for starters! I’m in the last year of my degree and I’m in the process of trying to get enough participants for my dissertation research. Anyone interested in taking part would be greatly appreciated, especially as it’s hard to get enough participants! Studying at University Cent...

Maybe you could email it to me if that works? I can PM you with my uni email, if that's fine?

Re: Dissertation idea - help!

I am surprised a university will force you to work with a supervisor who is not supportive of your idea. I believe that universities will usually provide you with a supervisor who either knows a bit about the area you're intending to study or can support you. My university is simply a little limite...

Re: Dissertation idea - help!

use of non-words like this really makes me cringe. Irrespective/regardless. I hope that's better? :D Regarding my supervisor, due to the circumstances of my university, I will not be able to be given any other supervisor but the one I currently have so will have to make do! Although, I do acknowled...

Re: Dissertation idea - help!

I'm still not understanding why they would be different in a group that plays musical instruments to one that doesn't. You could even exclude people who have or had serious mental health problems if you felt it was necessary. I was already skeptical to start with, but the more suggestions and point...

Re: Dissertation idea - help!

If you want to control for the confounds, just collect the data on them and stick them in a regression to control for their impact :) Yeah, I will definitely speak to my tutor about those possibilities. I think her main concern will be personality as a confounding variable and previous history of m...

Re: Dissertation idea - help!

I definitely agree with you Bela and everyone else who have commented so far. I will try to speak to my tutor(supervisor) about the things presented on this thread. I have my doubts about her being willing to listen, which will be a problem as I don't think she'll be happy if I don't go with her rec...

Re: Dissertation idea - help!

But all control groups have the same issue, and yet they are still the main scientific method - you just have to test how skew your groups are on the major demographic factors before you start. I'll have to see what my tutor says. It'll be quite difficult to do a study, when your tutor (most likely...

Re: Dissertation idea - help!

But ... wouldn't that be your result? From what I can understand from my tutor, the problem will be that I can't actually say it's playing an instrument that affects well-being/anxiety/depression if I found a difference between musicians/non-musicians. I.e. it could be other confounding variables s...

Re: Dissertation idea - help!

Just a quick update. I've spoken to one of my lecturers, and the reason why I would need so many comparison groups is to rule out confounding variables. By only having a musician vs non-musician group, I would potentially end up with an imbalanced sample of mental health. From what I can understand ...
