The aim of this research study was to explore factors related to stranger interaction and compliment type. Specifically, does the complimenting type, attire, or physical appearance, affect the estimation of the compliment's value on the receiver. Our prediction was that participants would underestimate their compliment's value on the receiver, if they gave an attire compliment, as compared to giving a physical appearance compliment.
