Terror Management Theory and Homophobia: Evaluating Jury Decision Making in Same-Sex Sexual Harassment Cases -poster

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



Abstract:

Terror Management Theory (TMT) proposes that individuals deal with their death by relying on stable sets of personal beliefs, or cultural worldviews. The present study investigated the effects of TMT and negative perceptions of homosexuals, or homophobia, on same-sex sexual harassment case judgments. Researchers hypothesized that mortality-salient participants with low homophobia would be more likely to find evidence of sexual harassment. Seventy-four undergraduate psychology students made judgments of a same-sex sexual harassment case. Before this, half of the participants were asked about their death. Results supported the hypothesis and previous TMT research, and should impact jury selection procedures concerning juror biases.
