  1. Are particular behaviour strategies related to an individual’s wellbeing and self-control? Participants needed for a psychology postgraduate research project at Manchester University. The questionnaire will take place online and is no longer than 15 minutes. Inclusion criteria: Must be a resident in the UK Must be aged 18 and over. https://survey.ls.manchester.ac.uk/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=l60Jn6m3 Much of the research surrounding this area suggests that people who have high levels of self-control use behavioural strategies to avoid situations that might be tempting. For example, if a person has a goal of losing weight, they may avoid the sweet shop on their way home from work. This person is more likely to achieve their goal of losing weight by avoiding a situation in which they might be tempted to buy sweets. There has been research that suggests that if an individual has high levels of self-control they will feel happier in life. The aim of this research is to find out certain behaviour strategies are related to levels of self-control and wellbeing. You will be expected to fill out a quick questionnaire assessing self-control, wellbeing and the behaviour strategies that you often use. Examples of questions include, “I am good at resisting temptation,” “when I work or study, I deliberately seek out a place with no distractions” and “I am satisfied with my life.” Contact details Please contact me on my university e mail address if you have any questions.
