Psychological Question

A judge decides to fine a person for a particular crime.

Researchers cause the judge to confront their own mortality (i.e. make them think about what would happen if they died etc.).

Do you think this would cause the judge to think he or she fined that first person too much, too little or think that their decision was OK? Why?

I'll go with my instinct on this one. I think it's irrelevant - the judge would just apply the law and get on with it.
