Using two words for GNAT items

By cjlab - 8/4/2016


We are designing a GNAT study to test implicit attributions of parents with and without kids with ADHD. We are wondering if anyone has tried using two-word items, "very active" for category words versus just using one-word "active."
Would we need to change the time these two-word items pop up on the screen?
Does anyone know of any studies that used two words?
For another example, would "talks excessively" take a longer time for participants to decide whether or not to hit the space bar versus "talks"?

Any thoughts would be appreciated!
