The publicaccountant profession can be significantly flawed from this gap, and thereforemust be mitigated. This research aims to investigate: whether negative outcomesaffect evaluators' evaluation process and whether providing alternative outcomeand alternative stakeholder will mitigate evaluators' hindsight bias; two betweensubject experimental designs ware conducted 136 participants. The experimenttests the outcome effect on evaluation process, alternative outcome and alternativestakeholder strategies in narrowing the gaps between auditors' and evaluators'perspectives. Results showed that hindsight bias was occured in the evaluationprocess. Meanwhile, the two mitigation strategies can effectively mitigate hindsightbias so that evaluators' decisions were much similar to auditors' perspective. Otherfindings showed that evaluators signals that auditors tend to consider more onnegative information or future bad effects.Keywords: perspective gap, mitigation strategy, hindsight bias, alternative outcomealternative stakeholder
