Interpersonal Perception: The Effect of Mode of Self-Presentation of Accuracy of Perception.
McKeithan, Elas; Miller, Monroe J.
This paper explores the utility of applying the conceptual framework of Probabilistic Functionalism to specific dimensions of Goffman's theory of self-presentation. Of particular concern is evaluation of the implications of this reconceptualization for empirical investigation of the effects of central concepts of Goffman's theoretical view. The study consists of two major parts: (1) translation of the parameters involved in self-presentation into a multiple-cue judgment task compatible with the lens model paradigm; and (2) utilization of this task as stimulus material for investigation of interpersonal learning. Specifically, 20 faculty members participated in filmed and taped interviews which were presented to 45 undergraduates under one of three experimental conditions: (1) film and audio; (2) film only; or (3) audio-tape only. They were to indicate the likelihood of good relations with that person and a prediction of the estimate each stimulus person would make of his relationship to students. Results indicate that subjects show internally reliable judgmental systems as measured by the multiple correlation among cue values and responses for each subject. (Author/HMV)
