Correction to Allison-Godfrey et al. (2014)

The following corrections should be made to the report posted above:


-The number of subjects should be 59, not 60. One participant in the experimental condition was excluded for being under the age of 18 and unable to provide informed consent.


-The last sentence of the Detailed Description of Method/Results should be as follows: “Contrary to the original findings, there was no significant difference between the experimental and control conditions, t(57) = -1.24, p = 0.22, d = .32, and political orientation was descriptively more liberal in the experimental condition (M = 5.13, SD = 0.83) than in the control condition (M = 4.84, SD = 0.97).” The descriptive statistics and analyses were corrected to account for the excluded participant (see previous point), and the mean for the control condition was also corrected (originally reported as 4.48; the last two digits were inadvertently transposed).
