  1. Arrows indicate whether participants receiving the vignette were significantly more (↑) or less (↓) likely to score highly compared to participants receiving all other vignettes at p < .008. r and d indicate effect sizes. (b) indicates that the significance and effect size relates to the behaviour question. All other results relate to the intention question.
