"Attitudes versus Actions": La Piere's (1934) Classic Study Revisited.
Dockery, Terry M.; Bedeian, Arthur G.
Social Behavior and Personality, v17 n1 p9-16 1989
Theoretically and methodologically critiques LaPiere's seminal research into attitude-behavior relationship. Asserts that actual discrepancy uncovered was between true attitude (tendency to act in certain way) and that which is measured by attitude questionnaire. LaPiere's primary concern was to point out danger of assuming that questionnaire-assessed "attitudes" lead to actual behavior in specific situations. (Author/NB)
