How many studies should I cite in my psychology essay?

In general in psychology everything you say should be backed up by evidence.

However, quality definitelt goes over quantity. It is more important to critically evaluate a study than to name lots of facts about many studies.

For a long answer question I would therefore recommend using two studies but talking in depth about them. For a short question use one study or two but if you go for two discuss the second one more briefly.
