Graphic Photographic Evidence and Arousal: Investigating Need for Affect in Information Processing of Emotional Evidence

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Jurors are often presented with emotional-arousing evidence. Prior research has indicated that graphic evidence can induce negative mood states among mock-jurors, which subsequently predicts more guilty verdicts. No prior research offers an explanatory model of why graphic photographs have the effect they do on jurors. The authors propose the Need for Affect (NFA) construct can explain why jurors reach certain decisions after viewing graphic evidence. More specifically, the need for affect model proposes that individuals who are motivated to engage in emotional experiences are more likely to have a high need for cognition and process emotional information systematically
