, : Evidence of 2 kinds of fear aroused by threat appeals. Psychological Reports 41((3 PART 1)): 788-790

Nausea-type fear is aroused by gruesome, vivid descriptions; concern-type fear is more related to the likelihood that the subject will experience the threat. Subjects [human] exposed to nausea-type threat expressed more aggression than subjects exposed to concern-type threat. Higbee's suggestion that nausea-type threat and concern-type threat are different was supported.
