Anyone knows how to create the above-mentioned script? I tried working through the standard iat script by modifying certain parts, but it does not seem to be the exact sequence as the one used in previous research (Rowatt et al., 2006) as appended.
Sequence of trial blocks in the humility–arrogance IAT.1
Block No. of trials Task function Items assigned to left-key response Items assigned to right-key response
1 24 Practice Humility words Arrogant words
2 24 Practice Self words Other words
3 24 Practice Self + humility Other + arrogant
4 40 Test Self + humility Other + arrogant
5 24 Practice Humility words Arrogant words
6 24 Practice Self + arrogant Other + humility
7 40 Test Self + arrogant Other + humility
Note: For half the participants the positions of Blocks 1, 3, and 4 are switched with Blocks 5, 6, and 7. The stimulus words used in the
Humility IAT are as follows: self (I, me, my, mine, self); others (they, them, their, it, other); humility (humble, modest, tolerant, down-toearth, respectful, open-minded); arrogant (arrogant, immodest, egotistical, high-and-mighty, closed-minded, conceited).
