I need to do a project that is experiment-based but I'm most interested in social and behavioral sciences and they seem more research-based that can answer the question without experimenting, (probably).
To specify a mental disorder I am fascinated about is schizophrenia, personality disorders, or depression. I'm not sure how to create a question that I want to know the answer to for this topic, so I'd like to know if a project like this is possible. If so how do I create a question for this project?

Hello and welcome to Science Buddies!

One good place to get some ideas about what projects are possible is the Science Buddies project database.

https://www.sciencebuddies.org/science- ... llprojects

This link takes you to the "Browse Topics" which includes a good selection of projects in the broad categories of Behavioral & Social Sciences.

Looking at the background and the procedures sections of some of those projects might help you see what sort of projects seem possible. You might even want to create your own project by combining parts of several projects.

Another useful Science Buddies resource is the project guides. Browse those tabs to get information on setting up your project and doing your own background research.

And, this link has a section on "Sociology and Human Behavior:"

Be sure to let us know if these guides help and if you have more questions.
