    Idiom is just a poncy word for slang/dialect.

    Sounds like you've got the beginnings of an interesting practical. Make sure you debrief afterwards, and make sure you emphasise in your write-up that you've done so and given the the right to withdraw. Also, make sure you don't get carried away with lots of conditions (i.e. ensure that you can run the relevant stats tests before you gather data)
    how would i give the right to withdraw? :confused:

    When you debrief, explain the point of the research in full and ask if they mind their data being included (or whether they want you to withdraw it) - in my experience, no-one ever actually does refuse use of their data.

    sociology's better :p:

    ok...difference between Sociology and Psychology though the medium of thought adventure;

    imagine a person.

    that person behaves and lives their life in certain, semi-predictable ways

    A psychologist will examine what's going on "inside their heads" (to be crude)

    Sociology examines how they have been shaped to behave that way, through socialisation, their experience of their position in the social system and their interactions with various social institutions (e.g. education, the family, media, etc). In practice, there's more of a focus on inequality and power.

    Clicky here to have a look at the kids of things we study (use TSR as your college name for full access for free) - if you're studying OCR psych, you might find the psychologystuff site useful too; there's a thing to run your stats test automatically.

    so sociology is just an extension of social psychology, in a way. I wanted to do sociology but our school didn't offer it The link doesn't work btw
