Abstract
The current studies test multiple mechanisms that might make people less harsh in their everyday judgments. Studies 1 and 2 measure the effect of taking the offender's perspective on judgmental harshness. Study 3 pits ten different mechanisms against each other and finds that experiencing moral humility, thinking of advice from wise people, and perspective-taking are the most effective mechanisms to reduce judgmental harshness. Situational and individual difference predictors of judgmental harshness are examined. Note: Abstract extracted from PDF text
