Feinberg, M., Antonenko, O., Willer, R., Horberg, E. J., & John, O. P. (2014). Gut check: Reappraisal of disgust helps explain liberal-conservative differences on issues of purity. Emotion, 14(3), 513-521. doi:10.1037/a0033727
In a series of three studies, this article examines the extent to which the emotion-regulation strategy, reappraisal, drives the disgust-conservatism relationship. This article presents evidence that conservatives instructed to reappraise their reactions to a video of men-kissing subsequently expressed more support for same-sex marriage than conservatives in the control condition.
