Product Description
In this lab subjects read 2 different descriptions of a court case and decide the guilt or innocence of the defendant based on the descriptions.

The punchline is that the only difference between the descriptions is that in one description, the defendant is vividly described as stumbling and having knocked over some guacamole onto a white carpet.

Availability bias would indicate that more people would find the defendant guilty because of the vividness of the description of the stumble. In this lab we will see if this effect is observed in our population.

This lab is adapted from an experiment proposed in Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People by Mahzarin R. Banaji & Anthony G. Greenwald.
