The research project that I am conducting studies the effects of human animal interaction on peoples perception of inmates. The idea behind the project is that people's perceptions of inmates may become positive if the inmate is shown interacting with an animal as opposed to seeing the inmate standing by themselves. In that scenario a more negative perception may be exhibited. I have learned a lot from conducting this research. Since the research is independent, it is up to you to manage your time wisely so everything is finished on time, so from doing this I have attained time management skills. I have also gained first hand experience with data collection and how to do so successfully.
