In the Human Penguin Project (N = 1755), 15 research groups from 12 countries collected body  temperature, demographic variables, social network indices, seven widely-used psychological scales  and two newly developed questionnaires (the Social Thermoregulation and Risk Avoidance Questionnaire (STRAQ-1) and the Kama Muta Frequency Scale (KAMF)). They were collected to investigate the  relationship between environmental factors (e.g., geographical, climate etc.) and human behaviors,  which is a long-standing inquiry in the scientific community. More specifically, the present project was  designed to test principles surrounding the idea of social thermoregulation, which posits that social  networks help people to regulate their core body temperature. The results showed that all scales in  the current project have sufficient to good psychometrical properties. Unlike previous crowdsourced  projects, this dataset includes not only the cleaned raw data but also all the validation of questionnaires  in 9 different languages, thus providing a valuable resource for psychological scientists who are  interested in cross-national, environment-human interaction studies.
