Where's My Mind? Development of a mobile experience sampling Android app to characterize spontaneous thought in daily life

Researchers: 
Jessica Andrews-Hanna, Joanna Arch, University of Colorado at Boulder

Brief description: 
This study is for people 18 years of age or older and involves voluntarily downloading the "Where's My Mind' Android app and completing some basic demographic questions (approx. 3 mins) and questions about your beliefs, feelings, and goals (approx. 3-5 mins).  Also, at four random times throughout the day, the app will send you a message (in the form of a push notification) asking you to answer multiple choice questions about what you were thinking and doing at that moment (1-2 mins/notification).  Once you respond to 28 push notifications, you will have the opportunity to view graphical displays of what you think about and how your thoughts compare to those of the other app users.  This is in an effort to make possible the development of a large international database of internal thinking that will be used to foster important future scientific research.
