dc.description.abstractThe most commonly used mortality salience manipulation (Greenberg, Pyszczynski, & Solomon, 1986) asks participants to reflect on two questions, one about the emotions associated with the thought of death and the other about what happens after one dies. Two experiments separated these two questions and gave participants either one or a control question. In Experiment 1, participants who responded to the afterlife question suggested severer punishments towards moral transgressors compared to those who responded to the emotion or control question. Experiment 2 demonstrated that priming different worldview norms affects the presence of worldview defense only for those who responded to the emotion question. Overall, these results suggest that the two questions used in the common mortality salience manipulation are deferentially affected by worldview accessibility and produce different results when separated.
