Re: EXPERIMENT - PLEASE DO THIS

Wow! Really cool experiment, Paige! I'm really excited to read other people's responses of this as time goes on! Question 1 - Yes! it totally did. For the first video I felt like the man was part of a horror movie, peering in through a window about to stab my face or something. For the second I felt like it was one of those olympic training clips - maybe an advertisement for bottled water or monster energy drink. The third didn't really inspire a lot of emotion for me. It sort of felt like...

Interesting experiment! It's so strange how a video where a man has no facial expression can be given so much emotion through music and the same video can be given so many different emotions. I wonder how this experiment would change if the man had some sort of expression. As well, do you think titling the videos with the emotion you are supposed to feel has an effect on the viewer? When I read the title "creepy" I immediately thought "I'm supposed to feel scared when I watch this." I think...

1. All of the clips changed the way i felt about the music except for the third one. I felt it was too out of place and didn't go well with the clip so it was hard to relate an emotion. The second video reminded me of a tv show that i like watching called Once Upon a Time. Its about fairy tale characters so the energy of the music was similar. 2. first video 2/4 second video 3/4 third video 1/4 fourth video 3/4. 3 and 4. The first video feels like the man is creepily standing outside...

Thanks for taking the survey, guys! Desi: I totally forgot that I had the emotions written on there, whoops! That probably has an effect on people... I'll remember to add a control sample if I do a later experiment. It's so cool that you guys had such intense (or not so intense, with the third one) reactions to such a simple video!

Re: EXPERIMENT - PLEASE DO THIS

Paige if you're having trouble getting people to do this experiment, it might be worthwhile to bring this outside the butterfly effect community. Try talking to friends/bugging family/ spamming Facebook or twitter. I've found that strategy merits me more responses than just the website.

Elinor Atkins (Alumni-LFAS) ·
This was a very interesting experiment to do, it was cool to see how music can truly impact your view on things, but also as Desi said it might be a good idea to remove labels of the exact emotion you were trying to portray it made me think that I needed to try to feel that way, ya feel? haha 1) most certainly they did, the first made me get a really eerie vibe like he was a really disturbed person maybe a killer? and the second made me feel like he just won a battle or something in medevil...

Audrey Heath (Charles Best) ·
This is a really cool experiment, I hope my answers help. 1) Yes, each video had a different feeling yo it. 1 is really creepy like he is going to show up at your door and kill you. 2 is adventurous like is is about to go on a mission to save the world. For 3 the music and to video don't really reflect each other, since he looks somewhat serious it doesn't really work as well as the others. 4 is sad you want to cry for him because something bad just happened. 2) video1 - 4/4 video2 - 3/4...

Really cool experiment. Going off of what Desiree said, it might have been more accurate if there were a control group and the videos weren't labelled. I kept trying to make myself feel creeped out with the first one. 1) Definitely. But some more than others. The first didn't really make me feel creeped out, so that one didn't change how I felt cause there weren't any feelings to begin with. The second made me want to run into battle and be heroic haha. The third felt awkward because the...

Wow I found this really, really intersting! 1. Yes is totally did! Even though it was the same clip over and over the music really changed how I thought about it each time. The first one I felt like I was watching a horror movie, the music really built suspense. The second one totally made me think of someone about to run into somekind of battle. The third one reminded me of a buddy movie of some kind. The forth one changed the clip the least for me 2. First video: 4/4 Second video: 4/4...

researchers said that there is few effects of colonialism than the importance example of them is introduction of rail way line, improvement of living standard and then high social classes.but we as Kenyan before we got in to the European rule we struggle so mach not to be ruled by foreigners because they grabbed our lands and forced us to work for them, in this act many Africans loosed their life because the Europeans used firearms.

i quite agree with you Mageto since talent without education is some what "meaningless."Though people say that not everyone is talented very well academically....i think that one requires education because he or she will need some social skills and will need to work on his languages with other people.

Re: Effects of Heartbreak

I was reading through your plan and something came over me and I was wondering whether you could try and find why some people are bale to overcome heartbreak faster than others, what causes it, is it genetic? I also maybe should warn you that this is such a personal project so you should expect bias and so to reduce this maybe you could look at increasing your sample size or maybe trying to avoid very personal questions. Looking forward to seeing how this goes.

Re: Effects of Heartbreak

Sarah Tylor (Mentor) ·
This sounds like a very interesting topic! I'm curious to see what your survey will show too. You might want to consider the effect a good support network/lack of support has on how people deal with heartbreak and how quickly they recover from it. It might also be interesting to look into how the heart is physically affected. A couple of websites that discuss this are: www.healthline.com and www.heart.org Looking forward to your next post!
Comment

Re: Effects of Heartbreak

Thank you James for the suggestions! I think that's a great idea to look into why people recover faster or slower than others. Also, for my survey I think maybe I'll add in some personal questions, but also some normal. I know how it feels to lose someone and I completely understand how it's a touchy subject. I'd like to make my survey completely anonymous. I like your suggestion to get a wide variety of people, I'll definitely try to get as many people to participate as possible.

Re: How do Dreams Affect People?

Cool research, Audrey! What I find super interesting about this is how much everything is influenced by the previous culture. Modern North American society also has lots of ways of interpreting dreams, and dream websites, etc. I wonder how much of our dream interpretations, or beliefs about dreams are drawn from these culture's ideas? I'm looking forward to seeing more of your project!
Comment

Re: How do Dreams Affect People?

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
Audrey, this is fascinating research! Like Jess, I definitely am interested in how every cultural 'dream theory' is an alteration of a past civilization's perspective. It's strange how different parts of the world all started off as seeing dreams as a paranormal messaging system. These all came from a similar area at different points in time, so I look forward to seeing your research of dreams in different areas at similar points in time.

This is a very interesting question, and I'm looking forward to your future research!

Re: Effects of Heartbreak

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
Could you define heartbreak please? I'm unclear as to what exactly you're researching. There's a lot of cliches and different perspectives when it comes to heartbreak, but you can't just say splitting of a relationship because that doesn't always involve 'heartbreak.'
Comment

Re: Effects of Heartbreak

When you talk about heartbreak are you going to talk about both psychological and physical effects? Because physical and psychological pain go through the same receptors in a brain and are sometimes mixed up, so something that may hurt you mentally you may feel physically and thing that may hurt you physically may seem to hurt you mentally.
Comment

Re: Effects of Heartbreak

Thanks everyone and I'll definitely check out that link karlie! To answer your question Paige, when I say heartbreak I'm referring to any relationship (with a family member or a significant other) that has been ruined or broken and has hurt you. So someone that you loved or been in love with and lost. It's definitely a cliche you see especially in romantic movies so I intend to stay away from that and stick to facts. I hope this helps you understand. And to Delaney, that's a really...

Re: Research - Effects of Heartbreak

Evan McFee (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Huh. I never knew that there was an "official" heartbreak medical condition. I always thought that the experience we associate with a broken heart was purely psychological, although I guess that the stress from the physical separation of a loved one would internally stem from the mind. Perhaps the next step would be to look at the correlation between broken heart syndrome and the influx of ligands and/or estrogen in the brain? I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
Comment

Re: Research - Effects of Heartbreak

Interesting. Maybe males do develop this condition as much as females, but don't want to admit it or talk about it. I mean it would depend on the person, but I think that most males don't want to be seen as weak, so they hide it. I could be way off but it you could look into it if you want.

This research is filled with amazing information. Id love to know what the body does when these collecting ducts aren't functioning properly.

Re: Project update 3(effective menu)

I think the main reason for using menus is to give information about the dishes offered. I think by the term effective menus we are looking at the menus that present information to the guests as accurately as possible. It is very nice for hotels to be using local foods because as desi said it helps improve the country's economy. Why do you think most of the restaurants will have local foods on their menus. What is the effect caused by the inclusion of local foods on the amount of customers...
