In previous studies, reactions toward risk feedback were assessed almost exclusively by predefined closed questions. In contrast, the present study examined spontaneous responses after 15 cholesterol and blood pressure risk feedback in a real-life setting (N¼951). Most spontaneous responses were related to four types of reactions: Emotions, risk feedback valence, expectedness, and future lifestyle change. This pattern of results emerged consistently across different threat levels (low, borderline high, high risk) and across different types of risk feedback (cholesterol, blood pressure). Importantly, three out of the 20 four most often generated types of reactions (emotions, expectedness, and future lifestyle change) are comparably underrepresented in previous research on psychological effects of risk feedback. Moreover, the results suggest that predominantly adaptive response patterns were generated in the face of personally consequential feedback.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Psychology and Health 23 (2008), 5, pp. 617-627</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Renner, Britta</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>To be or not to be at risk : Spontaneous reactions to risk information</dcterms:title> <dcterms:issued>2008</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:16:13Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Panzer, Martina</dc:creator> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:16:13Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
