Study Investigating Personality And Moral Decision-making


You are invited to participate in a study on personality and moral choices. This study is lead by Philip Kolba, researcher at Volition Labs. You can start the survey here.

The Survey

The study consists of a survey that should take about 10 minutes to complete. Participants must be at least 18 years of age to participate. The study has 3 components:

  • A series of hypothetical scenarios in which you are asked to make a choice
  • A series of questions about facial expressions, personality, past behaviour, and mood
  • Demographic questions about yourself

Optionally, you may include your email address to be contacted for follow-up research.

Data Protection

Your responses are anonymous and will only be associated with a generated code—your identifying information will be encrypted and will not be associated with your responses. You have no obligation to participate in this study and you have the right to terminate your participation at any time for any reason—your responses will then not be recorded.


Three participants who complete the survey will be randomly selected to win their choice of an Amazon gift card or Dogecoin cryptocurrency worth $30 USD. To be included in the drawing, you will need to provide your email address on a separate form at the end of this survey. This is optional to participating in this study, and your name and email will not be associated with your responses or generated code.


If you have any questions, please feel free to email:
