1) negatively correlated with anxiety

2) an independent variable

3) an operational definition of anxiety

**Writeacher**, Wednesday, December 19, 2007 at 8:16pmYou said 3 or 4. It's clearly not 4, so what's your other considered choice?

**PsyDAG**, Thursday, December 20, 2007 at 10:48amThe heart rate typically

*increases*with the anxiety level, so it can be used as an operational definition of anxiety. (It is one of the indicators used in the lie detector.)

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operational_definition

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
