Field experiment - High ecological validity but low control over extraneous variables

24 females and 75 males - sample rep/gen --> gender imbalance.

Study collects quantitative data - pros and cons of quantitative data

Questionnaire was used - validity and reliability can be questioned because participants are prone to demand characteristics, social desirability effect and/or skrew-you-effect.
