Gullibility survey

Alessandra Teunisse, author of an article on gullibility in the March 2017 issue of The Skeptic, is running a new study to further validate a gullibility scale.

She described the scale in a presentation she gave to a recent Sydney Skeptics in the Pub meeting and in the article, and is now looking to add to the results with a survey on peoples’ views of their own gullibility and how they perceive others see them.

The survey takes about 5-10 minutes to complete and all responses will be completely anonymous. You must be over the age of 18 to participate.

Teunisse is currently undertaking a PhD in Psychology at Macquarie University, studying personality styles and scam compliance in order to help people in the future avoid being scammed.

(The ethical aspects of the study have been approved by the Macquarie University Human Research Ethics Committee. HREC number: 5201700088. If you have any complaints or reservations about any ethical aspects of this research, you may contact the Committee through the Director, Research Ethics – telephone 02 9850 7854; email
