Living Off Psychological Research

I have been living off of doing university psychological studies in New York City.

I go into a room, look at pictures, write about them, do silly computer tests, and fill out mounds of questionnaires and I am handed a $10 bill. Not bad. $10 will cover my expenses for two days.

But sometimes I have to answer questions about my deepest darkest memories.

“Think about the worse thing that has ever happened to you, think about the time when you felt your worst,” the researcher instructs me as she dims the light in the room and pauses a few moments for my memories to take effect.

Now, answer these questions.”

I am unsure if this is worth a $10 bill.
