This Inquisit script implements the Regulatory Focus Questionnaire (RFQ) developed by

Higgins, E. T., Friedman, R. S., Harlow, R. E., Idson, L. C., Ayduk, O. N., Taylor, A. (2001). 
Achievement orientations from subjective histories of success: Promotion pride versus prevention pride. 
European Journal of Social Psychology, 31, 3-23. 

(more info on Higgins Lab:

The RFQ measures the subjective histories of promotion success (success of obtaining 'gains') and 
prevention success (success of averting 'losses') by assessing the responses to 11 5-point likert questions.
The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'RFQ.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); reversed scored items (R) are automatically reversed scored
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: 'RegulatoryFocusQuestionnaire_Pride_summary*.iqdat' (a separate file for each 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)

Summarydata for each participant: file saves the scores for the Promotion and Prevention subscale

check below for (relatively) easily editable parameters, stimuli, instructions etc. 
Keep in mind that you can use this script as a template and therefore always "mess" with the entire code to further customize your experiment.
