Wiki Version:
<p>The main goal of the current project is to execute an independent direct replication of Slepian, Masicampo, Toosi, and Ambady’s (2012, JEP:G) main finding from Experiment 1. Consistent with an embodiment account, Slepian et al. found that individuals who thought and wrote about a big (compared to small) secret estimated a pictured hill as steeper, suggesting that holding secrets weigh people down (Proffitt, 2006). In other words, “important meaningful secrets affected individuals…as if they were physically burdened” (Slepian et al., p. 623).</p> <p>We will execute a high-powered (estimated power of .9998) independent direct replication using exactly the same measures, manipulations, instructions (exact instructions and manipulation acquired from Slepian), and sampling approach (online sample using Amazon’s Mechanical Turk website). The primary goal is to test whether Slepian et al.'s finding generalizes to a new (and larger) sample of individuals, hence determining whether Slepian et al.'s original finding reflects reproducible knowledge.</p>
