Characters matter: How narratives shape affective responses to risk communication

Elizabeth A. Shanahan, Ann Marie Reinhold, Eric D. Raile, Geoffrey C. Poole, Richard C. Ready, Clemente Izurieta, Jamie McEvoy, Nicolas T. Bergmann, Henry King, Fritz Breithaupt
2019 PLoS ONE  
Whereas scientists depend on the language of probability to relay information about hazards, risk communication may be more effective when embedding scientific information in narratives.  ...  The persuasive power of narratives is theorized to reside, in part, in narrative transportation.  ...  We explore whether presenting scientific flood hazard information in certainty vs. probability language results in differing affective responses.  ...
