This experiment looked at priming on self-esteem. We were also interested in the differences between extroverts and introverts in relation to priming on self-esteem. A priming message with a graphic was used on the experimental group, while only the graphic (same image) was used for the control group. We measured extroversion between the two groups to look for differences within and between the group conditions, in relation to self-esteem. Participants in the experimental group were expected to have a higher self-esteem. A significant difference was found. The priming condition showed that participants had a higher self-esteem. However, a relationship between extroverts in the experimental group and self-esteem was not found.
