If you have an peanut or shellfish allergy, we invite you to participate in a 15-minute study about your food attitudes. The study involves measures that assess both your conscious and unconscious attitudes toward various foods. To learn more about the study or to participate, please go to [url="https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/food.htm"]https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/food.htm[/url] The study is completely voluntary and anonymous. We hope that you will find it to be an interesting experience. If you have any other questions please contact Jeff Hansen (hansen@virginia.edu) from the Implicit Social Cognition Lab at the University of Virginia. Thanks for your interest.

I didn't like this study at all!!!! Seemed to be some sort a peanut sponsered game. . . linking peanuts with the "I Like" catagory and flashing pictures of peanuts of all types on the screen.
Take care,

For clarification, given the previous post, this is not affiliated with any commercial interest at all. This is a psychology research study looking at attitudes towards different foods. Participants will pair peanuts with liking and pleasant and with disliking and unpleasant during different stages of the task. Thanks for your interest.

Interesting. It said that I had a strong preference for peanuts over shellfish.
I disagree, though. My DS is severely allergic to peanuts, and peanut things now disgust me. (I saw peanut-filled pretzels at Costco the other day. Yuck.)
In contrast, I like shellfish.

Sort of gave me a headache. Don't do it before your morning coffee.

I had the same experience as marina, and I detest peanuts (since my son's reactions), but like shellfish. Honestly, how could you scientifically prove a "hidden" preference. Seems like a huge waste of ingenuity.

Inspired by [b]Dostoevsky[/b]?? mmmmmmmmm. [i]One of my favorites.[/i]
I was eagerly awaiting participation in the study, but alas, I must have a "pop up killer". [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
