  19. 19. [OPTIONAL] <br />Share your feelings about your most recent relationship<br />
  20. 20. Conclusion: <br />Girls tend to share more of their feelings <br />than guys.<br />The guys and girls were more evenly matched than we first assumed in the multiple choice section, though the girls tended to favor more personal connections with people over the guys.<br />When given the opportunity to share a personal account however, <br />the amount of girls answering <br />was 10/12 versus 6/12 guys.<br />
  21. 21. New Questions Raised: <br />-Is there a correlation between the willingness people have to talk about their relationships and how many relationships they have had? <br />-Does the age of the person vastly affect their responses to the survey questions?<br />-Do people who are currently “happy” in their relationships express their feelings more or less than people who are “unhappy” in their relationships?<br />
  22. 22. How the Experiment Could Be Improved Upon: <br />-More background information could be known about the participants <br />-More participants could be included<br />-Vary the age brackets and see if there are any correlations<br />-Create more questions covering more topics/aspects for the survey<br />
