Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot: Activation of Hot and Cool Mental States Through Embodied Sensory Experiences

Our research examines the metaphorical link between the physical experience of hot (spicy) tastes and mental representations of hot-headedness. We find that people rate others as more hot-headed when experiencing hot (spicy) tastes and that such hot tastes also impact self-judgments and people’s own responses toward ambiguously aggressive actions.
