Question

# The bias blind spot is an effect that postulates that people see themselves as less susceptible to bias than

others. This effect was tested in Students of the January 2019 and July 2019 using the concept of self-serving bias. Students read description of what selfserving bias is about. They were then randomly assigned to rate, on a 9-point scale (with 1 being 'Not at all' and 9 being 'Strongly'), either to what extent they themselves show this bias (Self condition) or to what extent the average SUSS student shows this bias (Average condition). If the bias blind spot is present, scores in the Self condition should, on average, be lower than scores in the Average condition. Note: For more information on bias blind spot for self serving bias a) Formulate the necessary hypotheses and use PSPP/SPSS to analyse the data by applying the most appropriate statistical test. Interpret the results to determine if the bias blind spot is present, and report your results in

b) Recommend an alternative statistical test that can be used to analyse the data in Question 3a. Note: Do elaborate on the reasons why you think this particular statistical test is suitable alternative.
