A college fitness center offers an exercise program for staff members who choose to participate. The program assesses each participant's fitness using a treadmill test and also administers a personality questionnaire. There is a moderately strong positive correlation between fitness score and score for self-confidence. Can we conclude from this study that a fitness program will boost self-confidence? Explain.

Solution

VerifiedWe have been given that there is a moderately strong positive correlation between fitness score and score for self-confidence.

Association/Correlation does not imply causation and thus the fitness program will increase self-confidence, because the slimmer people are more likely to participate in a fitness program and slimmer people then to have better self-confidence.

This then implies that a fitness program will not necessarily boost self-confidence.
