abstract
The study will evaluate the hypothesis that cultural worldview (CWV) defense is enacted through motivational rather than cognitive processes. Eighty undergraduate students will be subliminally primed with either death or a neutral prime, and complete a CWV defense measure immediately after priming or after a five minute delay. Results are anticipated to demonstrate that CWV defense will be present in both the immediate and delay conditions when mortality is salient. Furthermore, it is expected that levels of CWV defense will be higher in the delay condition. These findings would suggest a motivational process and may be effective in evaluating one of the key components of Terror Management Theory by examining the methods individuals implement to assuage concerns about mortality.
