Brief Statement of Original Result Vohs et al. (2006) reported that money priming enhanced people's self-reliance motivation and made them less willing to help others. In Experiment 3, one group of subjects was first primed with money concepts in a verbal descrambling task.
Type of Replication Attempted Highly Direct Replication
Result Type Failure to Replicate
Difference? Same Direction, .42
Number of Subjects 40
Number of Subjects in Original Study 39

Detailed Description of Method/Results Method
The exact same procedures were followed, using 40 subjects.

Results
Subjects volunteered to code 3.95 datasheets (SD 3.30) following the neutral prime, and 3.70 datasheets under the money prime (SD 4.03). This difference is not significant, t (38) = 0.215, p = .83. The effect size was d = .08.

The results show no effect on helpfulness from money priming, and the nonsignificant trend observed lies in the opposite direction to predictions.

These conclusions remained unchanged when the data were re-analyzed after removing one outlier from the data, t(37) = 0.82, p = .42, d = .25.


Any Known Methodological Differences

Additional Comments
Email of Original Investigator
Quantitive Information Vohs' effect size was d = .66 for the reduced helping produced by money priming. Ours was .08.\r\n\r\nThe power in our study was .674 to detect a difference of this size at .05 (one-tailed).
