All data here were collected with E-Prime and exported as a comma separated text file. These have not been cleaned or altered. We have included a readme file for a couple of the datasets, which explains what the different columns in the dataset mean. Only a few columns are relevant for the data analyses that were conducted in the papers. These columns are noted. Please email with any questions.
