If you identify as an Effective Altruist (EA), you are invited to participate in a study being conducted by The University of Melbourne. Our broader project investigates how various personality characteristics relate to moral judgements and actions. In this particular study, we aim to gain a robust understanding of the personality characteristics of EAs, which will provide the basis for follow-up studies testing the inclination toward effective altruism in non-EAs.

This research will be valuable for movement growth. Specifically, it will be useful for identifying people who may be inclined towards endorsing effective altruism ideas, yet who are currently unaware of effective altruism itself.

The survey will take approximately 20 minutes. For every survey completed, AUD$5 will be donated to the Against Malaria Foundation.
