► Subjects to conduct experiment on
► A list of 5 uncommon words
How to Conduct
► Arrange for at least 10 women and men in each category that you're choosing to study―for example, age groups from 5-10, 10-15, 15-20, and men and women in each category.
► Call the first subject into the room and tell them you will say 5 words out loud, and very slowly to them. They will have to remember those 5 words and repeat them in that order.
► Then, proceed to slowly, clearly, and loudly say the 5 words (for example, Red, Wall, Bottle, Crying, Surprise).
► Let them think and memorize these words for 5 seconds.
► Then ask them a series of questions that are intended to throw them off balance.

- Which city did they grow up in.
