In a 3 (format: word-only, picture-only, embedded) x 3 (emotion: empathy, compassion, neutral) between-subjects experimental design, 864 MTurk workers viewed three stories of Syrian refugees, completed prejudice measures, and made charity donations. Participants exposed to embedded stories reported lower prejudice when induced to respond with either empathy or compassion compared to neutral.
