comment When can anchoring backfire?
@JakeWestfall In my actual study, the decision was dichotomous, so people were either 100% right or 100% wrong for each judgment. Each individual's accuracy rate is the proportion of accurate responses over several judgments. So, if you got 3 out of 4 right, you had a 75% accuracy rate. Then, I compared the mean accuracy rates between the two groups.

True, it is not a classic anchoring scenario.

I'd add that we have 5 fingers on a hand which likely also influences it's popularity. We use base-10 probably because we have 10 fingers.

Lots to think about! I appreciate the response.

@BenBrocka - I like the idea. I don't have access to an fMRI right now, but it seems like it would be feasible to validate instruments using one.

Clarified emotion vs emotional arousal.

comment Method for evaluating how emotionally evocative a question is?
@JohnPick - Right now, I'm not interested in differentiating between emotions. I don't care if somebody is angry or frightened, as long as the arousal is high. I'd probably flag somebody if they showed very high arousal to a question when compared to their peers, or to their individual baseline of responses to benign questions. Hope that helps.
