Item Usage Stats
The aim of this study was to explore the relationships between assessments of residential movie interiors, personal attributes of assumed residents and respondent characteristics. The study was conducted with 113 students from the Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design of Bilkent University. Nine residential movie clips were presented to the participants and they were asked to fill out a questionnaire sheet which consisted of three parts: Items involving space qualities, personal attributes of assumed residents, and relatedness and happiness of the respondents. Residential spaces rated as unfamiliar were rated as more exciting and were preferred over those rated as familiar. Furthermore, respondents having related self-construals reported more happiness and they perceived assumed residents as being happier and more trustworthy. No significant relationship was found between the complexity ratings of the movie clips and the evaluations of the residential spaces portrayed. This might have been because other variables besides complexity could not be controlled due to the nature of the stimuli.
