Question and answer
Q: 1. What hypothesis did Medvec & colleagues set out to test in their first study of the ‘near miss’ phenomenon?
A: To test the thoughts of human mind to see if it produces an emotional reaction such as taking the alternate route home and having an accident ?If only I had taken the usual route home, then this wouldn't of happened (Kowalski & Westen, [ 2011).? A tendency to imagine an alternate outcome known as counter factual thinking is the ability to think of alternative outcomes. To test the hypothesis of
the ?near miss? phenomenon ?that the ease of generating counter factuals could lead some individuals with more positive objective outcomes to actually feel worse about their situation compared to some whose objective situation was actually worse (Kowalski & Westen, 2011).? ]
