Western Psychological Association 2012 Convention: San Francisco, CA
First psychology convention experience! So much fun and informative interacting with other psychologists and psychology students. All the many months of work finally paid off. (Could not have done it without your help Dr. Freberg!) It was quite exciting being able to present our research and talk with other individuals who were interested in what we have been working on, and wanted to hear about where we planned on taking the research moving forward.
It was pretty funny too. I thought our research was quite benign. It was a lot of fun and quite interesting researching if there were physical characteristics Democrats or Republicans possessed that made it so someone looking at them would recognize that they are a Democrat or Republican (like in the original research we were replicating they said Republicans looked stronger, Democrats looked warmer, etc.), but when some people walked past our posters their eyes got quite BIG, their mouth dropped a little, and they kept on walking. They could hardly believe that we 'had the guts' to research something like this. I guess even though we thought our research was benign and harmless, many others were quite taken aback!
