Mariah studies the concept of optimistic bias in the laboratory. ‘Optimistic bias’ refers
to the phenomenon where people believe that, while bad things can happen to others,
they do not happen to themselves. She develops a study where she has two groups: One
consists of high school students from rural communities. The other consists of high
school students from urban environments. They come to her lab to do her study. In the
lab she presents students with several hypothetical scenarios in which negative events
occur and participants rate how likely they think others will experience these events,
and how likely they themselves will experience these events. What type of research
design is Mariah employing here?
a. An experimental design.
b. A non-experimental design.
c. A quasi-experimental design.
d. A longitudinal design.
