Abstract

The purpose of this study is to test the ability of unconscious stimuli such as colors, words, and symbols, to influence conscious decision making with relation to color. Participants will consist of twenty Western Oregon University students, 14 females and 6 males, with a mean age of 23, and a standard deviation of 2.3 years. I will be using a between subjects design with one experimental group receiving one treatment of the independent variable, (unconscious stimuli) being compared to a control group (neutral stimuli). I expect to see a significant influence of unconscious stimuli on decision making.
