The study is conducted online. This part of the research is confined to birth order effects on our values. It involves completing a questionnaire on what is important to you in your life and providing some information relating to your birth order, age and gender. This should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Nobody except for the above named researchers will be allowed to see your answers and in the study you will be known only by number. So the information is completely confidential and only broad trends of results will be reported.
Your participation is voluntary and you can withdraw at any time without giving a reason. You can decide not to answer any question that you prefer not to. However, this would amount to withdrawal, as, in this phase of the research, there are no other decision-making questions to answer and collect data from.
