Our latest paper was just accepted for publication at the Journal of Risk Research. We find that disgust sensitivity involves general risk avoidance, not just for disease: People high disgust sensitivity perceived greater risk than those who are low with respect to various risks, including recreational, social and financial risks.
Congratulations to Simon Karg and Aaron Wiener-Blotner on their first publication!
