Ioana Cionea, of the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma, United States is currently working on a research project aimed at learning more about the way people from different cultures argue.
Research Survey: Cross-Cultural Argumentation Practices
June 2, 2013 by SP
Prof. Cionea is currently recruiting participants to complete an online questionnaire. Respondents would have to provide basic demographic information (such as sex, age, occupation, but no identifiable information such as name or email address), and answer some open-ended questions (for example, what they usually argue about, with whom, and how often), and then answer a few questions in which they enter a number to indicate whether they agree or disagree with several statements presented. Completing all these questions should take approximately 20-30 minutes.
To be eligible, participants must be able to read and understand English satisfactorily and should be between 18 and 60 years old. Those wishing to participate, or to help recruit participants, can follow the link below to the study.
All the information provided will be kept confidential. Participants will not be asked to provide any personal information and there will be no link between answers and personally identifying information.
Anyone who is interested in helping with the project or who might desire more information can contact Prof. Cionea using the information below:
