The participants in the foot-in-the-door studies that are summarized here were overwhelmingly college students or people who were randomly selected from the telephone directory. In some cases, people were approached at restaurants, at libraries, or looked up as a population with "special" needs. In some studies, participants were approached while walking along university walkways. All the studies were done at various places in the U.S. exept for one which was done in Israel.
