Journal One:  Smile Study smile.pdf
Hinsz and Tomhave (1991) conducted a study where students at a North Dakota State University acted as experimenters in a smile study.  Students were asked to smile at random people and count how many of those people smiled back.  They discovered that of the people that were smiled at, 53% of them smiled back.  Would this be the case if this study was done in the south?  Alabama?  This journal assignment aims to determine that.  So, you will become an experimenter in this study.  Go to either Target or Walmart and smile at no less than 75 random people and count how many of them smile back at you.  Make sure you keep a record of it.  In your journal, state what time of day you did this, where you did it, the total number of people you smiled at, and any other information that you think might be helpful/useful in this study.
