Studies Looking for Participants

Department of Psychology ~ McMaster University ~

M.D. Mel Rutherford

NEW STUDY May 2014




You are invited to take part in a research project involving completing an anonymous online survey, which examines whether certain personality and other characteristics are related to the way individuals decide what is right and wrong and whether they engage in behaviours that have the potential to result in legal consequences. In particular, we are interested in whether certain traits that may be associated with autism spectrum disorder are related to differences in moral decision making and whether these differences may place some people at risk of offending. We anticipate that the findings of the study will inform programs to assist individuals who may be at risk of offending.

The survey will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. Initially, you will be asked some general questions about yourself, including your age and your educational hist
ory. These questions will help us to make sense of your responses.
