Claire Studies Psychology

I wanted to take a few minutes today to introduce you to one of my good friends, who also decided to go to Hollins for graduate school. Claire is one of the smartest and most interesting people I know and she is currently working on her master's thesis. I'm turning the rest of this post over to her because she needs your help; I hope you can take her survey and help her with her research!

Hi ladies! 

My name is Claire and I'm a Master's student at Hollins University studying psychology. 

I'm currently researching the qualities that women look for in romantic partners and women's use of contraceptives.  If you’re 18 or older, you’re eligible to help me in my study! 

Hopefully you might find it fun to reflect on the characteristics you value in a romantic partner, or maybe you’ll be as excited as I am to know that you're helping to further psychological science.

Either way, for completing the research survey you get a $10 Amazon gift voucher!

Participation is entirely voluntary.  There are some sex-related questions, so if you ever feel uncomfortable, you may discontinue the survey at any time.  Email Dr. Richard Michalski from Hollins University if you have any questions at rmichalski (at) hollins (dot) edu.

All of the information you provide will be kept completely confidential and will NOT be linked to your email address.  The survey takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete.  (If you think that’s long for $10, you might be right, but consider that you’re making above minimum wage for the time it takes to complete the survey!)  Your Amazon gift voucher will be sent to you by email within two weeks of taking the survey.

Read the consent form and take the survey HERE!

Feel free to invite any eligible female friends you think might be interested! Remember, they must be 18 years or older.

Thank you so much for participating!


As of 11/21/12, the study has completed data collection and is now closed. Thank you so much for your support and participation!
