A psychologist wanted to study what effects self-presentation communication style had on interpersonal attractiveness among college students. Self-presentation style was defined as the extent to which a person was open and forthcoming or shy and reserved in disclosing personal and private information. The researcher received IRB approval for the study, and had all participants fill out an informed consent form prior to participation in the study. Using a sample of undergraduate students at a small, completely residential liberal arts college, the researcher had each student stand in front of a group of about 10 other students and discuss his or her most embarrassing sexual experience. After each presentation, the others rated that student on a scale from openness to reservation. Two days later, each group was reassembled and all students rated the degree to which they were attracted to the others in their group.
