Time, Money, and Morality (and p-Hacking?)

Rolf Zwaan (@RolfZwaan) posts on his blog: “A paper that is in press in Psychological Science tests the hypothesis that priming someone with the concept of time makes them cheat less than someone who is not thusly primed….have four experiments, each with their key prediction supported by a p-value between .04 and .05. How likely are these results?”. The results are not encouraging.

Zwaan uses a free web tool for investigating p-hacking, created by Uri Simonsohn, Leif Nelson and Joe Simmons described in this upcoming paper; an invaluable tool!
