I conducted the perception of money experiment by surveying ten people and asking them to
tell me which bill size was larger. I printed off the two pictures of the $1 bill and the $100 bill, both of
which had two different sizes on the same sheet, with the smaller bills being closest to correct size. I
asked family members and friends if they could guess which bill size was correct. This experiment
originated by Bruner & Goodman (1947), which found that children drew pennies to scale and as the
denomination grew, so did the drawings of the coins and were no longer accurate in size.
My results did prove the hypothesis of Bruner & Goodman (1947) to be correct, which states
that people or children decipher larger currency amounts to being larger in size.
I asked 5 people to tell me which $1 bill was closest to the actual size, and the results were 4
people out of 5 guessed that the smaller $1 bill was closest to the actual size. I asked 5 people to tell me
which of the $100 bills was closer to the actual size and 2 out of 5 guessed correct with that one. I was
guessing that more people would get the $1 bill correct, which my tests proved to be correct.
I concluded that the experiment that was performed by Bruner & Goodman was accurate for
the results that I received when I performed this experiment.
