    This affects how we solve the anagram due to our individual differences to the visual stimuli presented at the time of performing the specific task. This alters our performance as priming manipulation is used. Priming manipulations are used to increase the mental representations without necessarily letting the participant know to achieve neutral behavior and results of the experiment (Jefferis, & Fazio, 2008). This type of manipulation works as the participant is unaware of how they will later…

    We provided participants with one of three surveys, each of which contained identical anagrams, but were written in different colors. Individuals were given surveys with either red, black, or green instructions. Because of its attribution to negative connotations, instructions in red are hypothesized to hinder the performer’s ability to solve the anagram. This means participants will correctly unscramble fewer words within the time limit when presented with a red inked survey. We also predicted…

    worse mood than those with high self-esteem when assigned to the hard anagram condition. This effect was not found with participants that were assigned the easy anagram condition. That is, regardless of their self-esteem, either high or low, participants did not differ in their mood in the easy anagram condition. The present study suggests that there is an effect of self-esteem on mood. These results are consistent with previous research showing the impact of self-schemas on information…

    character, and one may find it particularly interesting that the narrator is relieved that Botkin not in Pnin’s department. Why would Kinbote feel relieved? The answer is that the narrator is actually Botkin. This is further evidenced by Botkin’s mysterious first name that starts with a “V.” The first name is fascinating because in the King of Zembla’s index entry, it lists his full name as Charles Xavier Vseslav. Interestingly, the text only mentions the name Vseslav in the index, and because…

    This functions works as we are unaware of the alterations being portrayed in our mind and we are unaware of the visual effect going on. For example when using familiar type face for the anagram participants stated it was easier to rearrange the words while participants using unfamiliar type face frequently remarked that letters were difficult to recognize (Witte, Freund, & Csiki, 2002). When trying to solve an anagram participants usually perform better when given the usual materials such as…

    detail. There are two parts of the experiment- one for humans and one for animals, or in this case, a dog. For the dog, the scientists strapped its paws to the floor and exposed it to non-lethal electric shocks, which we will refer to as the uncontrollable aversive stimuli. At first, the animal tries to escape, but it fails, and it soon learns that the uncontrollable aversive stimulus is uncontrollable. When a means of escape is made available, via a door, and unstrap the dog, it does not try to…

    The first hypothesis was that participants, given Red will perform worse on the anagram task than those given green or black ink instruction. From the literature above, we can conclude that red color undermines anagram performance contrary to color green or black. This is well, aligned with our first hypothesis. The second hypothesis was that participants were given red ink will find anagram task more challenging for themselves and will find it more frustrating. As we have seen from the…
