# Which Statistical Analysis Should I Run? SPSS?

Independent variable 1= Gender (Male or Female)

Independent variable 2= Responsibility (Self or Other)

Dependent variable= Amount of Regret

My group and I are testing whether people experience more regret when they make a decision that ends badly for someone else (a friend) or if they experience more regret when they make a decision that ends badly for themselves. We hypothesized that people would feel more regret when they make a decision that ends badly for someone else. We also hypothesized that women would feel more regret than men.

To test this, we gave 40 people (20 males and 20 females) questionnaires that had a 7-point Likert Scale. One questionnaire had a scenario that involved a decision ending badly only for some else- given to 10 males and 10 females. Another questionnaire involving scenarios that end badly only for them- given to 10 males and 10 females.

5= Severe

6= Very Severe

7= Overwhelming

*I am also required to create a table OR graph. Which one would be more appropriate?
