213 participants were shown a sequence of five different increasingly disgusting images. Depending on condition, they were either directly asked (solicited) or prompted to volunteer (unsolicited) whether or not they were experiencing disgust in response to a given image. We found that the act of solicitation directly lowers the threshold at which individuals are willing to provide information about their internal psychophysiological experience of disgust.
