Dear colleagues:

A few weeks back I asked you via this mailing 
list to participate in a 2 minute Web experiment. 
Here are the results and some background 

During Subjective Probability, Utility and 
Decision Making (SPUDM) conference I had the 
pleasure of listening to a fascinating talk by 
Craig McKenzie on information leaking as an 
alternative explanation of the framing effect. 
(The framing effect describes the phenomenon that 
people make remarkably different decisions if the 
same fact is described "positively", i.e. "the 
cup is half full", from when it is described 
"negatively", i.e. "the cup is half empty"). As 
my own methodological goal for that conference I 
had set an overnight replication of one of the 
experiments in first day's presentations using 
our group's tools for Internet-based 
experimenting, to be able to present the results 
along with our methodology on the second day of 
the conference.
The slides from this talk are now available 
online at 
- I recommend downloading one of the Quicktime 
movies. The presentation contains the results of 
the studies and the URLs to the tools used.

Thanks again for taking part in the study.
Best wishes from Zürich and happy holidays,

   Dr. Ulf-Dietrich Reips
