We would like to invite you to participate in the Beacon Study. The Beacon Study is designed to measure personality traits across context, time, and perspectives. As part of this multi-part study, you will describe your own and others’ personalities, play games and have brief conversations with fellow participants, and complete daily surveys. As part of this study, you may earn up to $90, plus chances to win $50 Amazon.ca gift cards. The first part of the study involves completing an online prescreen questionnaire in order to determine eligibility. If eligible, participation will include two in lab sessions at McGill University, and daily surveys on an internet enabled device.

As part of the online pre-screen questionnaire you will be asked to provide email address for people who know you well. We only use these addresses for invitations to this study and we absolutely do not share emails with anyone else.

In order to be eligible to participate and receive compensation:

  • You must provide 3 valid email address for acquaintances who are able to describe your personality as part of the online prescreen questionnaire.
  • You must bring an acquaintance with you to Part 1 of the study. This acquaintance does not have to be the same as one of the three provided in the online prescreen. The acquaintance that you bring with you to the lab will be invited to take part in the Beacon Study by completing a questionnaire and participating in short daily surveys.

Please be prepared with 3 email addresses for people who know your personality when beginning the online pre-screen questionnaire. You must provide valid contact information for them and one must come with you to the first part of the Beacon Study. Your acquaintance’s participation is completely optional, and won’t impact your participation in the study. For example, the acquaintance that you bring with you to the first part of the study may chose not to participate when they get to the lab; however, you may still participate even if they chose not to.

Participants must be over the age of 18.
