Social Schemas of American College Students.
Stotland, Ezra; And Others
Social schemas were defined as cognitive structures associating positions on different dimensions of interpersonal situations, such as liking, power, helping, similarity, status, communication, and influence. Social schemas were measured by first presenting social situations by verbal and pictorial means which clearly illustrated one position on one dimension; then the subjects were asked what position this implied on a 2nd dimension. The social schemas of over 3,ooo students were measured. It was found that the students tended to be consistent across items designed to measure the same social schema. Students also tended to show a high degree of agreement on social schemas. (Author)
