This script implements the Willingness To Forgive Scales based on:

DeShea, L. (2003). A Scenario-Based Scale of Willingness to Forgive. 
Individual Differences Research, 1(3), 201-217.

Scale presents 12 scenarios of personal transgressions and have participant rate their 
willingness to forgive on a 7-point Likert Scale.											  

The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'WillingnessToForgive_raw*.iqdat' (a separate file for each participant)

build:							Inquisit build
computer.platform:				the platform the script was run on
date, time, subject, group:		date and time script was run with the current subject/groupnumber 
blockcode, blocknum:			the name and number of the current block
trialcode, trialnum: 			the name and number of the currently recorded trial
									(Note: not all trials that are run might record data; by default data is collected unless /recorddata = false is set for a particular trial/block) 
stimulusitem:					the presented stimuli in order of trial presentation
response:						the participant's response
correct:						the correctness of the response (1 = correct; 0 = incorrect)
latency: 						the response latency (in ms)

(2) Summary data file: 'WillingnessToForgive_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)
/Total:							sum of all 12 ratings
/meanRating:					mean rating 
/minRating:						minimum rating score selected
/maxRating:						maximum rating score selected
/meanRT:						mean latency (in ms) of rating

Participants are asked to read 12 scenarios (presented one at a time) involving a variety of transgressions 
and rate their likelihood to forgive on a 7-point Likert Scale.

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.
