The Article On Physical And Interpersonal Warmth

- When reading the article on physical and interpersonal warmth, I found that the study only focused on female, 18-year-old, college students. I felt that the limited number of participants limited the results of the original study. By only looking at young woman the study is impossible to generalize, so I was curious how this information would hold up if we used a larger sample of participants – a mix of genders and age groups. My idea would be to replicate the study using the wider sample group....   [tags: Psychology, Emotion, Emotional intelligence]
