What about substances that are disgusting and bitter? Various studies have linked physical disgust to moral disgust, but despite the rich and sometimes striking findings these studies have yielded, no research has explored morality in conjunction with taste, which can vary greatly and may differentially affect cognition. The research reported here tested the effects of taste perception on moral judgments. After consuming a sweet beverage, a bitter beverage, or water, participants rated a variety of moral transgressions. Results showed that taste perception significantly affected moral judgments, such that physical disgust (induced via a bitter taste) elicited feelings of moral disgust. Further, this effect was more pronounced in participants with politically conservative views than in participants with politically liberal views. Taken together, these differential findings suggest that embodied gustatory experiences may affect moral processing more than previously thought.</p> <h3>Study Materials</h3> <p>In the Files section, we have the original....</p> <ul> <li><a href="https://osf.io/t4jxs/" rel="nofollow">Vignettes</a></li> <li><a href="https://osf.io/wbjgd/" rel="nofollow">Manipulation Check</a></li> <li>Informed consent for the <a href="https://osf.io/x3u7s/" rel="nofollow">Water</a>, <a href="https://osf.io/3xucz/" rel="nofollow">Juice</a>, and <a href="https://osf.io/znkgv/" rel="nofollow">Bitters</a> conditions</li> </ul> <p>We do not have the original distractor task, but we have <a href="https://osf.io/ju7nq/" rel="nofollow">this version</a> that a CREP participant created.</p> <h3>Recommendation from the original author</h3> <p>"I recommend your students practice "selling" the cover story as described in the methods."</p> <h3>Notes from CREP Team</h3> <p>To obtain a CREP replication reward the minimum N for this project is 57.</p> <p><strong>Cover Story</strong>. Some questions arose during the course of the replication in regards to the cover story. It is described in the paper and in the informed consent form. Because we could not get in touch with the original author, we have created a new cover story based on the consent form and the method of the paper. Please read the following to participants:</p> <p>"In this study you will be asked to read several vignettes and make judgments about the characters in them. Your job will be to judge the actions of the characters. During this task, you will be asked to drink a beverage. The purpose of this study is to determine whether motor movements involved with drinking influence your judgments while reading about others. In order to successfully attain this, please drink each dose in a single swift motion, as if you were drinking a shot."</p> <p><strong>Swedish Bitter</strong> The brand of the Swedish Bitter was not identified, and we could not get in touch with the original author. Given that Swedish Bitters are likely comparable, we suggest any brand to be acceptable for this study. </p> <p><a href="https://osf.io/gnvm5/" rel="nofollow">Other FAQs here</a>.</p>
