Abstract:

To examine the effects perspective-taking on juror’s decisions, participants read a trial, assigned a verdict, and rated their perceptions of the defendant and the victim. Half of the participants were instructed to perspective-take with the defendant. Results across three experiments demonstrated that perspective-takers saw the defendant more positively (e.g., less guilty, less responsible). Also, male participants perceived the defendant more positively than female participants. Experiment 3 manipulated the gender of the defendant and the victim. Results showed that perspective-taking with a male defendant led to less guilty verdicts and more positive perceptions. Perspective-taking can influence courtroom decisions.
