Passive aggressive notes are the best.
there was nothing passive about the second one..
Love the last one - reminds me of halls :P
The other 2 applicants in my year have been successful… Just me who is not good enough, then.
A PhD place with no funding.
Crying at the Vincent Van Gogh episode of Doctor Who, again :P
They can leap 36 feet
As in leap forward 36 feet
They don’t jump 36 feet into the fucking sky do you know how terrifying that would be the human race wouldn’t have survived because we’d have all had heart attacks while still in Africa
this post makes me cry every single damn time
My housemate has got her grade for our last piece of coursework, but mine still isn’t showing up… They shouldn’t send out the grades for people at different times :S Paranoid that mine isn’t working or didn’t submit properly or something….
I’ll do a read more, because I don’t want anybody to read something that they think might trigger them… (about self-harm and feelings of not being good enough)
My housemate is saying that she has “the same” problem with lack of participants as me… By this, she means that she “only” has less than 30 people per condition, and one of her findings is a trend rather than being a significant difference. Yes, that is definitely the same as having 16 people complete a task, allowing for a 4-6-5 split into positive, neutral and negative associations… Yes, having a trend at just under 30 participants is definitely the same as having a significant finding and a trend for correlations with 4 and 5 participants…
It really annoyed me… The difference is that her trend still means something! She can still include that finding and discuss it. There’s no way I can say anything about my correlations with so few participants, even though they make sense with theoretical moderators of explicit-implicit attitudes! Basically, for my positive implicit attitude group, attitude was positively correlated with explicit attitude scores (so, more positive explicit = more positive implicit), while my negative implicit attitude group had the complete opposite - more negative implicit attitudes actually had more positive explicit attitudes. This completely fits in with the idea of explicit measures (questionnaires and rating scales in my project) being guided by social desirability, and an attempt to hide negative attitudes! BUT, I can’t say bugger all about it in my report because of the small sample size. Seriously, NOT the same as a trend at 30 participants per condition!
