Effects of Race of Subject and Experimenter on the Order of Free Recall of Affective Lists.
Savage, James E., Jr.; Friedman, Philip
The affective attribute in free recall was investigated in relation to the order in which words are recalled. A factorial analysis was employed to determine the effect of certain emotionally arousing words on the recall of these words by black and white subjects. Both black and white experimenters were also employed to test a total of 48 subjects. The most important result was that black subjects held back affective words in free recall significantly more than white subjects. No contextual effect of the race of experimenter was found. The study shows the importance of the affective attribute in the order of free recall. (Author)
