  1. Hi there; what an interesting study!

    1. How did you measure harshness, aggression and deterrence? Are they all on a scale or continuum?
    2. What do you think might count within the range of third party punishment, or of “observing” a transgression against someone else (e.g. reading about it in the news or being told firsthand about what happened to a friend?) in the outside world?
    3. When/do you think there might be cases in which being observed might increase punishment (e.g. under social pressure, or setting a precedent)?
