The simplest independent variable has two levels(conditionsComplex designs are also called factorial designs.An experiment conducted by Baaren and his colleagues (2004) conducted anexperiment using 2 x 2 design to see whether mimicry (coping) helps in promotingpro social (helping) behaviors2 x 2 design The factorial design with 2 independent variables both with 2 levels is called a 2 x 2design (read 2 by 2"). It has four conditions. So what is meant by 2x2 x2 2x2 x2 x2Research hypothesisMimicry increases helpfulness.1st Experiment: Single IV was manipulated using RGD.IV 2 levels.mimicry or non mimicry.DV whether they were helping.One group was randomly assigned to mimicry or another to non mimicry group andthan DV was assessed.All participants in the mimicry group whereas 33% of non mimicry group helped.2nd Experiment to test whether helped the participant other than the experimenter.Same IV as in 1st experiment were used.New experimenter was not a manipulated variable after completing the 1stexperiment the new experimenter entered in the room.Mimicked one 84% co
