What instruments or measures did the researchers use to collect data? This was a longitudinal research design, which was measured using the ULS (Uppsala Longitudinal Study). Originally it consisted of 123 children, but this particular study only focused on 66 (Fransson, Granqvist, Bohlin, & Hagekull, 2013). The SAP (Separation Anxiety Test) was also used, as well as questionnaires pertaining to personality information. Do you think the research in this article was conducted in an ethical manner? Why or why not? In relation to the article, how have ethical considerations in personality psychology research changed over the years? To the best of my understanding, this was done ethically. The participants were informed of confidentiality, permission was obtained for the lab used, and all participants were compensated ( Fransson, Granqvist, Bohlin, & Hagekull, 2013). The real issue I see is that the main participants were children and I saw no mention of gaining parental permission mentioned.
