Hypothetical Psychological Study: A psychologist was interested in whether anxiety would affect someone’s level of self esteem. She tested two groups of people. One group were people awaiting the outcome of a job interview. She classified those as in a state of high anxiety. The other group, who she classified as in a state of low anxiety, were people who she tested just before they went out for a meal with colleagues after work. All participants completed the self esteem questionnaire, on which high scores indicate high levels of self esteem.
