Anyone who works in research in the behavioral sciences learns to appreciate the value of data. Psychological research, as it is practiced in North American universities and those who follow the same model, has been dubbed the science of first year university students. Most of the undergraduate and graduate studies, and probably many published articles relied on that easy to gather convenience sample that is those enrolled in Psychology 101. Most studies tend to require filling up some battery of questionnaire and relinquish part of your personal information (after signing a vaguely worded consent form).
