BACKGROUND INFO 	
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
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

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
OVERVIEW
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
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.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
DURATION 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
the default set-up of the script takes appr. 3 minutes to complete

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

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

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

q*_response:						response given (in assigned values)
									Scale: 1 (hyperfeminin answer choice) - 0 (otherwise)
									
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)

computer.platform:				the platform the script was run on (win/mac/ios/android)
script.startdate:					date script was run
script.starttime:					time script was started
script.subjectid:					assigned subject id number
script.groupid:					assigned group id number
script.sessionid:					assigned session id number
script.elapsedtime:				time it took to run script (in ms); measured from onset to offset of script
script.completed:					0 = script was not completed (prematurely aborted);
