W., Thompson, E. P., Higgins, E. T., Atash, M. N., Pierro, A., Shah, J. Y., Spiegel, S. (2000). To "do the right thing" or to "just do it": Locomotion and assessment as distinct self-regulatory imperatives. Journal of Personality & Social Psychology, 79, 793-815. (more info on Higgins Lab: http://www.columbia.edu/cu/psychology/higgins/measures.html#) ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ OVERVIEW ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The RMQ assesses 2 functional dimensions of self-regulation referred to as Assessment and Locomotion by subjective responses to 24 questions (12 per subscale). The questionaire also includes A Lie subscale (+6 questions). Assessment: aspect of self-regulation that governs a person's eagerness to spend resources on evaluation of situations (pros and cons) to work out/find the best possible solution. (-> "do the right thing") Locomotion: aspect of self-regulation that governs a person's eagerness to spend resources to achieve movement/actions to attain goals without delays (-> "just do it and move on", the 'doers' and 'go getters') ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 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: 'rmq.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 1-6, R-questions 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: 'regulatorymodequestionnaire_summary*.iqdat' (a separate file for each participant) inquisit.version: Inquisit version run computer.platform: the platform the script was run on (win/mac/ios/android) startdate: date script was run starttime: time script was started subjectid: assigned subject id number groupid: assigned group id number sessionid: assigned session id number elapsedtime: time it took to run script (in ms); measured from onset to offset of script completed: 0 = script was not completed (prematurely aborted); 1 = script was completed (all conditions run) LOCOMOTION_Score: averaged score (range: 1-6) on the locomotion subscale: q1 q3, q4, q5, q8, q13R, q16, q21, q24R q25, q28, q29 => the higher the score, the higher motivation to spend resources to achieve movement/actions to attain goals without delays ASSESSMENT_Score: averaged score (range: 1-6) on the assessment subscale: q2R, q6, q7, q9, q10R, q11, q15, q19, q20, q22, q27R, q30 => the higher the score, the higher motivation to spend resources on evaluation of situations (pros and cons) to work out/find the best possible solution. LIE_Score: averaged score (range: 1-6) on the lie subscale: q12, q14, q17, q18, q23, q26 => the higher the score, the higher movitation to select favorable response options ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ EDITABLE CODE ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 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.
