[nfbwatlk] Study to investigate how blind people visualize emotional situations and make moral judgements

I always enjoy helping students but consider this endeavor flawed. The
sense of proportionality used in making decisions regarding fairness and
justice would arise well enough from any number of sensory modalities.
Emotional situations differ from just decision making in that they are
'hot' feeling states and, in my experience, a subjects response is queued
more by voice, intonation and breathing - no 'visualization' required.
I don't want to be negative here, on my first post,  but It just feels
wrong to respond to a study that asks if blind people make moral decision
differently than sighted people.
