The study was designed to investigate, with the aid of physiological measurements, the subjects reaction in a standard experiment. The following questions were investigated 1 Do activities incidental to the experimental process, such as the order in which the subjects are tested and the conditions of waiting, affect the subjects 2 Does the introduction of experimental variables arouse the subject separately from, and in addition to, the experimental arousal itself 3 Do individual conditions, such as personality traits and previous experience, make a difference in the importance of intrinsic factors 4 Do these differences in arousal affect the results of the experiment.
