Hard for Me But Easy for You: Alibi Generation Difficulty Influences the Generation Effect

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



Abstract:

When people generate an alibi prior to evaluating a suspect's alibi, they rate the suspect's alibi as more believable. This ‘generation effect’ could be a result of phenomenological difficulty, leading to an empathetic and more favorable evaluation. The current study manipulated alibi generation difficulty by asking participants to generate either one or five alibis prior to evaluating a suspect’s alibi in either a police investigation context or a criminal trial context. Counter to hypotheses, preliminary results indicate an inverse of the generation effect: that increased alibi generation difficulty results in ratings that the suspect’s alibi is less believable.
