Introduction: This study is being completed as part of an undergraduate dissertation with the University of Glasgow.
Purpose: This study aims to investigate how gaming habits vary with personality traits. The study hopes to inform further research by identifying unique patterns of motivations and attitudes to gaming that predict video-game usage in a neurodiverse population.
Format: This study involves you completing a series of questionnaires. The first is the Gaming Attitudes, Motives and Experience Scales (GAMES). This is a measure of different motivations for playing games. The current study also involves the completion of shortened versions of the Autism Quotient, which measures autistic traits, and the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale, which measures traits associated with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Neither scale is diagnostic, and all people express some of these traits. Finally, you will also answer some questions about your gaming habits, and how they fit among other life areas. Similarly, any responses are not necessarily symptomatic or diagnostic of unhealthy behaviour.
Selection of Participants: This study is aimed at adults over the age of 16.
Anonymity: The information collected will be anonymous. You will be given a participant number and no names will be stored or reported. All data will be stored anonymously, and confidentiality will be upheld.
Voluntary Participation: Participation in this study is voluntary and you are under no obligations. If you do not wish to answer some of the questions in the questionnaire, you can skip these questions, but bear in mind that if you skip a large number of questions the data will be unusable. You may opt out and close the questionnaire at any time, without giving a reason.
