This script implements the Hyperfemininity Scale as described in:

Sarah K. Murnen Ph.D. & Donn Byrne Ph.D. (1991) Hyperfemininity:
Measurement and initial validation of the construct, The Journal of Sex Research, 28:3,
479-489, DOI: 10.1080/00224499109551620
26 questions, each with 2 statements. One statement choice represent the hyperfemininity response
and is scored with a 1. The alternative answer choice is scored with 0.

The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'hyperfemininityscale_survey.iqdat'

date, time, group, subject:		date and time script was run with the current group/subjectnumber 
build:							the Inquisit build 

q*_response:					response given (in assigned values)
q*_latency:						how much time (in ms) the participant spent on the surveypage with this particular question (the last time this particular surveypage was visited)

(2) Summary data file: 'hyperfemininityscale_summary.iqdat' (Inquisit Lab: one data file per participant)

script.startdate:				date script was run
script.starttime:				time script was started
script.subjectid:				subject id number
script.groupid:					group id number
script.elapsedtime:				time it took to run script (in ms)
computer.platform:				the platform the script was run on
/completed:						0 = script was not completed (prematurely aborted); 1 = script was completed (all conditions run)
totalScore: 					sum of all individual scores (Range: 0-26);
								the higher the number the more hyperfeminin answer choices were selected

26 questions with binary answer choices. One choice represent the hyperfemininity response
and is scored with a 1. The alternative answer choice is scored with 0.
