The research of Dias et al. (2019) was conducted at the University of Porto, Portugal. The main goals of this study were to determine people’s motivation to engage in protest or apathy and to understand the role of emotions in these processes. There was no monetary compensation for participation in this experiment.
The experiment of Díaz-Lago and Matute (2018) took place at the University of Deusto, Spain. Its objective was to understand how knowing two languages affects some of people’s thinking abilities. In particular, the participants were supposed to see fewer relations between events that are actually unrelated. For taking part in the experiment, all the participants were rewarded with 6 euros.
The study of Farkhondeh (2019) was conducted at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran. The objectives or the study were to understand how the behavior patterns of parents and their children were related. The monetary compensation for participation was not considered.
The experiment of Rose et al. (2015) was conducted in the Institute at Baycrest, Canada. The main goals of the research were to assess the importance of working memory and executive functions in performing everyday tasks. There was no monetary compensation for participation in this experiment.
The research of Vorbeck and Bördlein (2020) was conducted at the University of Applied Sciences, Germany. The objective of the experiment was to understand how auditory feedback affects students’ results during bodyweight training. The monetary compensation for the participants was not considered.
For me, the most exciting experiment was conducted by Vorbeck and Bördlein (2020), because it included physical activity. Therefore, its results can be used in various areas of sports to help people achieve better results. With this approach used all over the world, competitions among representatives of different countries could become more exciting. I would not want to participate in the experiment of Dias et al. (2019) because it seems to be emotionally complicated. During this experiment, people should become dictators or “victims,” which is related to a high level of emotional pressure.
