    Well Ichiban, I've got to tell you, this is a horrible webpage. If you want people to be forthcoming with you and create an account of some sort, you've got to be forthcoming with them. That page doesn't say anything about who the organization is, who sponsors it, what the tests are about, what the privacy policy is, or what the results will be used for. There's an admin notice that goes to somebody at SUNY Rochester. That's it. There's no welcome, no thanks-for-participating, nothing that tells potential respondents enough to trust your organization with the information given.

    I suggest going back and revamping the page entirely.

    Thanks for your constructive criticism. I will take some of those things into consideration!

    I have taken all of this into consideration and have added a substantial amount of information to the site. Please feel free to provide more feedback!

    Best regards,
    Ichiban.

    Looks interesting. I'll certainly give it a go tonight.

    But please use ordinary English!

    Do you really speak like this: "explore interpersonal and inter-relational skills in the context of the recognition of emotions." or " the research will try to find correlations between increased emotional intuitiveness and the circumstances surrounding the participant's childhood".

    Imagine you are talking to your best mate. Would you speak like that?

    But, it looks really interesting, so I;ll give it a go! :)

    Haha. Sorry about that. That part was originally written for a few professors at my university to read. Thanks for your support!

    Best regards,
    Ichiban.
