Perceptions of Crisis Situations

This proof-of-concept demonstration applied the Riverside Situational Q-sort (RSQ) to the problem of assessing audience responses to two types of crisis situations (sports and food safety) across three media outlets (social, traditional news, and professional website). The RSQ provided nuanced information about situations comparable to existing instruments for assessing personality.
