3) Participants Experiment Population Sample 1a People around the age group of 20-21 years (=20.7 years) 218 1b People around the age group of 39-40 years (=39.9 years) 150 2 People around the age group of 20-21 years (=20.8 years) 136 3 People around the age group of 34-35 years (=34.1 years) 105 4) Independent Variable – Time Dependent Variable – (1) People and (2) 15min work to edit research essay. The process used by the researcher is Random Assignment as people are randomly assigned to either work on the 15min essay editing or leave as soon as they finish the 45-minute task in the laboratory. 5) 5 and 6 answered together 6) Results and Conclusion : the researchers found that giving more time to people psychologically impacts their thought process and makes them feel that they have sufficient time in the present or in the future whereas keeping a time constraint on people makes them feel that they do not have time and spend time only on themselves and prioritize themselves first. This means that when people have a time constraint, they must judiciously use their time even though they tend to fear the limited amount of time left but when you have excess time, people feel that they have sufficient time for the present and the future due to no fixed limitation of their time.
