What gives take away points

“What Gives?”Take away points

  • Spending money on others leads to happiness

  • “Direct support for our causal argument that spending money on others promotes happiness more than spending money on oneself.”

    • Study 1: In a national sample, happiness correlated with money given to charity

      • Flaw in drawing causal relationship from correlation

    • Study 2: Workers happier when bonus money spent on others

      • Controlled for bonus size

      • Sample size too small

    • Study 3: Students given $5 or $20.

      • Happier when spent on others

      • Not an authentic design

  • Does giving away money cause happiness?

    • Maybe happy people like to give away money.

    • Maybe people who have more money than others are just happier!

Final thoughts on research methodologies

Final Thoughts on Research Methodologies

  • Research methods follow from the research questions

  • Consider your predispositions to research methodologies as you write your research questions.

  • Don’t think of it as “qualitative versus quantitative”

  • Be skilled and comfortable in a variety of research methodologies.

  • Think triangulation


Concept of triangulation where are you in the data collection

Concept of Triangulation: “Where are you” in the data collection?
