BACKGROUND INFO 	
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
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.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
OVERVIEW
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
Scale presents 12 scenarios of personal transgressions and have participant rate their 
willingness to forgive on a 7-point Likert Scale.											  
  
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
DURATION 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
the default set-up of the script takes appr. 4 minutes to complete

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

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

build:							The specific Inquisit version used (the 'build') that was run
computer.platform:				the platform the script was run on (win/mac/ios/android)
date, time, 						date and time script was run 
subject, group, 					with the current subject/groupnumber
script.sessionid:					with the current session id

blockcode, blocknum:				the name and number of the current block (built-in Inquisit variable)
trialcode, trialnum: 				the name and number of the currently recorded trial (built-in Inquisit variable)
										Note: trialnum is a built-in Inquisit variable; it counts all trials run; even those
										that do not store data to the data file. 
										
stimulusitem:						the presented stimuli in order of trial presentation
response:						the participant's response (scancode of response buttons)
correct:							accuracy of response: 1 = correct response; 0 = otherwise
latency: 							the response latency (in ms);measured from: onset of scenario

(2) Summary data file: 'willingnesstoforgive_summary*.iqdat' (a separate file for each 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); 
									1 = script was completed (all conditions run)

Total:								sum of all 12 ratings
meanRating:						mean rating (1 = not at all willing to forgive....7 = completely willing to forgive)
minRating:							minimum rating score selected
maxRating:							maximum rating score selected
meanRT:							mean latency (in ms) of rating

EXPERIMENTAL SET-UP 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
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.
