Let Emotions be the Judge: Graphic Evidence and Need for Affect in Legal Decision-Making -poster

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



Abstract:

The current study examined how varying levels of graphic evidence impact juror decision-making. It also introduced the Need for Affect (NFA) construct as a moderating variable to explain the relation between graphic evidence and legal decision-making. Preliminary analyses revealed that participants’ perceptions of defendant guilt are not significantly affected by the degree of graphic content presented in evidence. However, individuals who endorsed a higher NFA rated the defendant’s likelihood of guilt as greater. The application of NFA to the legal field, specifically to jury selection, is discussed.
