New Paper: Disgust Sensitivity and Risk Perception


March 2018.

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!
