Student Responses to Selected Terms and Scenes in Natural Resource Management
Abstract:Galvanic skin response was used to measure the intensity of emotion among three groups of college students viewing photographic slides of terms and scenes associated with natural resources. Three observations were made: (1) people with no knowledge of professional terminology responded to the connotation of the term; (2) the greater the number of reasons given for motivating a response, the less intense the response; and (3) the longer the time perspective under consideration, the less intense the response.
