As everyone here knows, Nichols and Knobe (Nous, 2007) have uncovered two striking constrasts in intuitions about free will and determinism. In their first experiment, they have found a contrast between an abstract and a concrete case. In their second experiment, they have found a contrast between a high-affect and a low-affect case.
Now, the first contrast (abstract VS concrete) has been replicated many times (see for example the cross-cultural study by Sarkissian et al.), included by myself. However, I have tried many times to replicate the second contrast (high-affect VS low-affect) but have failed many times (I first thought French subjects were just weird, but I was successful in replicating my non-replication on Amazon Mechanical Turk).
I have found only one published study trying to replicate this contrast: the one by Feltz et al., and it actually fails to replicate the contrast.
So, I was wondering: how many of you actually tried to replicate this contrast (the one between raping VS cheating on one's taxes)? How many of you succeeded and how many of you failed? I think a quick and dirty 'meta-analysis' would be useful to everyone.
