Online Survey: Personal Impressions

Here’s another request from a student asking for participants for an online research survey:


Dear Asian-Nation Visitors,

My name is Hsu Ling-Hui, a Ph.D. student at the University of Texas at Austin, Department of Communication Studies. I would like to invite you to participate in my dissertation project. The study explores the factors that influence impression formation of human beings. Your contribution is very important to the research, and you may win $500 for doing the survey! Thank you very much. Please read on!

Title: Impression Formation (Part I) & Cultural Adaptation of American College Students (Part II)

The purpose of this study (Part I) is to investigate the elements that influence people’s impression formation, both the internal state of a perceiver and the external situational demands.

Although unrelated to this researcher’s study, Part II of the research is to contribute to a large-scale anthropological project on general adaptation of immigrant children at American colleges. The current focus is on cultural adaptation of Asian American students to dynamic campus environment.

To be eligible for the current study, you must meet the following criteria.
a) You are a student and above age 18.
b) You are an Asian American and your country of ethnic origin is China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, or Vietnam.
c) You were either born in the U.S. or immigrated to the U.S. before age 12.

It takes around 30 to 40 minutes to complete all questionnaires in the study. As a participant, your name will be entered into a raffle to win a $500 award. Two awards will be given away. Winners will be drawn at the end of the data collection and notified (around July 2008).

To ensure accuracy, the study has four links:

Link 1: if the Last Number of your Social Security Number is 0, 1, or 2

Link 2: if the Last Number of your Social Security Number is 3, or 4

Link 3: if the Last Number of your Social Security Number is 5, or 6

If the Last Number of your Social Security Number is 7, 8, or 9, please click any of the above three links (Links 2, 3, or 3) to access the survey because Link 4 has been filled up.

If you may, please extend my survey invite to your friends. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Hsu Ling-Hui
