Scitech is proud to be partnering with the University of Western Australia to help researchers conduct a study investigating the causes of narcissism in children.
UWA is looking for 300 volunteers aged between 8 and 16, and their parents, to take part in the study that will be looking into how a child’s physiology and personality interact and influence their emotions during two different learning tasks, a computer task and a maze task.
This research will contribute to a larger project investigating how children develop a sense of self (e.g., self-esteem and narcissism).
Parents of 8-12 year old children and the children themselves.
You will need to bring your child into Scitech so they can participate in a short (30 minute) experiment.
Parents also fill out a short questionnaire (10 min).
Participants will receive a summary of the study results and will be reimbursed with a $10 Coles/Myer voucher.
