The present study will investigate the relationship between time perspective (TP) and happiness after virtual alienation experience.
First, participants will be examined their implicit and explicit representation of time perspective using the time perspective-IAT (implicit association test), Zimbardo Time Perspective Inventory (ZTPI) and Balanced Time Perspective Scale (BTPS). Second, they will play a computer game "cyberball" manipulated to exclude participants (toss a virtual ball just 2 times out of 30). After the game participants will complete the Positive and Negative Affect Scale (PANAS) and subjective wellbeing inventory.
We expect participants who show higher in Past-Positive, Present-Hedonic and Future-oriented time perspective will experience more positive affect and higher subjective wellbeing after the virtual alienation experience.
