Abstract:

Adam, a psychology student, decides to test an idea. His theory is that people with less hair will choose a very hairy dog to compensate. He goes to the local park with no clear idea of how he is going to record data or control variables. Things go wrong due to lack of planning. Meet Adam again in his kitchen with more experience and another idea. This time he stresses the need for preparation and takes us through each stage of the planning from the development of hypotheses to the debriefing of participants.
