Everyone is concerned about how the media, in all its forms, may be influencing how we view ourselves, our appearances, and our attitudes and behaviors. We are interested in finding out what we can about media influences on attitudes.

You are invited to participate in a study examining the importance of all forms of media and their effects on our perceptions and attitudes. If you agree to participate, you will be asked to read and respond to questions by clicking the link below. Your total time commitment for participation in this study will be about 15 minutes.
