Participant Information

You are invited to take part in a study on time personality and self-reported well-being. Whether or not you take part is your choice.  If you would like to take part now, but change your mind later, you can pull out of the study at any time until you press Submit at the end of the survey.

 
What is the purpose of the study?
This study concerns people’s behaviours and attitudes towards time. These include, for instance, whether people are generally on time or consistently late. In particular, we are investigating the relationship between 'time personality' and self-reported well-being. This is an undergraduate dissertation and you can contact the lead researcher via email at destynie.mallory@buckingham.ac.uk or the research supervisor at philip.fine@buckingham.ac.uk if you have any questions.

What are the possible benefits and risks of this study?
There are no foreseen risks of physical or psychological harm involved in this study. However, you will be asked questions involving your health and well-being, so if any of these questions raise concerns, please contact your GP. The benefits of taking part will enable psychologists to learn more about Time Personality and its relationship to well-being, which has implications for promoting healthy lifestyles. This study has ethical approval from the School of Sciences and Medicine Ethics Committee at the University of Buckingham

What do I have to do?
You will be asked to provide some demographic information about yourself (age, gender, etc.) and then complete two questionnaires, one asking about time-related behaviours, and the other asking about well-being.  Please answer all questions - if you do not wish to do so, you can close the window and leave the survey at any time. The whole survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete.

What are my rights?
Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. Your data will be stored anonymously, confidentially and securely, and may be used for future conference presentations and journal publications, but never with any identifying information. You can withdraw from the study without reason before reaching the final debrief page by closing the window. Once you press Submit, your data cannot be withdrawn as it will have no identifying information.
