Negative Body Image - Relationships with Heightened Disgust Propensity, Disgust Sensitivity, and Self-Directed Disgust



The research project tests in two correlational studies among undergraduates a series of critical relationships: 1) trait disgust propensity would increase the risk of developing a negative body image by increasing the likelihood of feeling self-disgust, and 2) trait disgust sensitivity would heighten the impact of self-disgust on the development of persistent negative body appraisals.
