Title: Untrustworthy People Grab Our Attention - Whether We Want Them to or Not
Author: Bell, Chris
Main, Kelley J.
Identifier: 00005
Abstract: Our automatic attention to injustices and untrustworthy people has the potential to distract us from more relevant concerns. It can make us overly cautious and wary of risk-taking. It can even cause errors in decision-making. There could be a negative impact on our surroundings when we focus on untrustworthy people as a result of second- or third-hand information.
