Moral Disgust, Anger and Online Shaming
Applied Social Psychology
(Master’s programme)
2019
Online interactions can sometimes have adverse consequences for our real lives. One form of said interactions is online shaming, a way of socially castigating a person online. As a consequence, the shamed person faces problems with her self-esteem and struggles with face-to-face communication. Despite the spreading of online shaming and the importance of understanding its mechanics, this topic is still poorly covered. The aim of this paper is to fill this gap by checking if trait anger and trait moral disgust may be predictors of online shaming. To do so, a survey of 230 participants was conducted. The Pearson correlation and regression analysis showed that trait anger was marginally related to online shaming. The obtained result will be useful for future researches not only with regards to online shaming but also for the topics of anger and moral disgust.

Keywords: Internet, emotion, anger, disgust, online shaming
