i conducted an 'who am i' study where participants had to write 20 statements about themselves.
i had 3 conditions:
5 years
11 years
18 years
with 10 subjects for each condition

my hypothesis is ' the older the age group the more psychological statements will be given and the younger the age group the more physical the statements will be'

i guess you could write that you didn't control participant variables if there was no way of screening them for IQ. you may have found that the intelligent younger children were more likely to use psychological statements than the less intelligent ones as children are only capable of talking about psychological statements once they are in the concrete operational stage and are capable of symbolic thought.
