32 6-point Likert scale, self-report
											  

DATA FILE INFORMATION: 
The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'MAIA.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: 'MAIA_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)

Subscale scores: the higher the scores the more positive the body awareness (Range: 0-5)

/Noticing = mean of (q1,q2,q3,q4)
/NotDistracting = mean of (q5R,q6R,q7R) R=reversed scored
/NotWorrying = mean of (q8R,q9R,q10) R=reversed scored
/AttentionRegulation = mean of (q11,q12,q13,q14,q15,q16,q17)
/EmotionalAwareness = mean of (q18,q19,q20,q21,q22)
/SelfRegulation = mean of (q23,q24,q25,q26)
/BodyListening = mean of (q27,q28,q29)
/Trusting = mean pf (q30,q31,q32)
