Unconscious thought and the weighting of inadmissible evidence in juror decision making

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



Abstract:

This study examined the role of unconscious thought in participants’ ability to disregard inadmissible evidence. Three groups of participants read a summary of a murder trial containing only circumstantial and inadmissible evidence. One group rendered verdicts immediately after the presentation of the summary, one group thought about the evidence for three minutes before providing verdicts, and one group completed a distracter task for three minutes before providing verdicts. Participants who were distracted before rendering verdicts were more likely to reach a not-guilty verdict than participants in the other groups, suggesting that unconscious thought could improve jurors’ decisions.
