    I'm a social psychologist at the Universities of Lincoln (outgoing PhD student) and East London (incoming lecturer). I've just launched a new study looking at psychological factors that might influence voting behaviour in the upcoming EU Referendum and wanted to get some debate started about what these factors might represent.

    My thinking is that personality factors (openness to experience) and conceptions of morality (check out 'moral foundations theory' online - specifically Jonathan Haidt's 2008 TED talk) play an important role, as do perceptions of the social environment. These are the factors I'm looking at in my current study. If you would like to take part, the link is here: https://lincolnpsych.eu.qualtrics.co...hsV3n7y4Li4f0p (it only takes about 10 minutes, and all completed entries are eligible for a £50 prize draw for an Amazon voucher as a thank-you for taking part).

    What do you think? Do these factors have a role to play? Looking forward to hearing your views!
