We welcome you to participate in the “I Feel You” study. The Yale Affect Regulation and Cognition Lab is conducting an online study about the emotions of the people around you and how you perceive and respond to those. As a participant in this study, you will first be asked to fill out an online eligibility survey (approx. 10 minutes). If you are eligible, you will watch an online training video (approx. 25 minutes) before the study begins. Once the study starts, you will receive three online surveys (approx. 3-5 minutes) a day for ten days. In these surveys, you will be asked questions about your emotional interactions with others. You will earn $7.50 after taking half of the daily surveys and  50 cents for any additional daily survey you complete; meaning that you can receive up to $15. You can obtain a study link by contacting us via the email below - We look forward to your participation.
