FEB ? Love Actually — No, Like Actually ? [ social experiment with free froyo ]

vdayloveNina Stender ’16 wants YOU!

? 36 Questions to Fall in Love ?
Brought to you by the Social Experiment Group (aka SEGWAY)

Hoping to find love just in time for Valentine’s Day? Sign up to participate in a social experiment activity on Sat, Feb 13th at 430pm.



Participants will be paired up and given a set of 36 questions, divided into three sets which scientists believe “foster closeness”. This is based on the idea that the best way for you to get close to your partner is for you to share with them and for them to share with you. After answering the questions, participants will sit and look into one another’s eyes for four minutes.

There will be FREE FROYO provided to help break the ice ;) –courtesy of the Adelphic Educational Fund

We are hoping to examine whether intimacy between two strangers can be accelerated by having them ask each other a specific series of personal questions. This experiment is based on a published psychological study by the psychologist Arthur Aron. (http://psp.sagepub.com/content/23/4/363.full.pdf+html )

Participants will be asked to fill in a follow-up survey (anonymous!) so we can find out if you guys developed any kind of friendship/relationship/ hookupship etc. We will write up the results and share them :)

Pls let us know if you have any questions/comments/concerns or if you want to get involved.

Date: Saturday, February 13
Time: 4:30 – 5:30 PM
Place: Exley 150 Tishler Hall
