Question details

With regards to the use of WEIRD samples, what has been proposed as a valid argument for their use?

A. WEIRD samples are convenient, and regardless if they are representative of the true population of adults, we should conduct the research with this type of sample and it is highly likely that the research will result in findings generalizable to the rest of the population

B. If the construct and/or measures of interest have been validated across samples of different populations, then it should be okay to use these measures with a WEIRD sample.

C. WEIRD samples should be used as a comparison or control group for all cross cultural research because they represent a distinct culture as a baseline.
