Checking python version

I’m running PsychoPy 2022.2.5 on a Mac Monterrey (12.6.3).

I’m curious if there is a way to check which version of python I’m using. Is it as simple as navigating to this folder to see if I’m using python 3.8?


I ask because I’ve had persistent issues running experiments. Sometimes my picture naming task will just crash midway through the task. I’ve documented it here…

I’m wondering if my experiment will occasionally crash because of the python version. I’m getting an ‘ApplePersistenceIgnoreState’ error when the picture naming task crashes. The error is documented in the link above.

I created a conda environment using the yml file provided on the PsychoPy website, but when I tried running ‘psychopy’ in terminal I couldn’t get the app to open. It’s really puzzling.

Any input is welcomed,
