Jennifer’s Reaction to the Disgust Study

For the disgust study we had in class, my answers did not change towards the people. Being disgusted or not, I felt the same way about the people’s attractiveness. I learned that for most people their feelings did change when they were disgusted. It was very interesting to find out the increased percentages on rating attractiveness that changed after people were disgusted. It makes sense that people found the pictures more attractive after viewing disturbing pictures. But I would like to know why I personally did not find the people more attractive after I watched the gruesome pictures. What factors, if any, did I manipulate? Doing this study makes me realize we have many factors that determine our daily decisions and we should recognize the factors that play into each situation we are faced with.
