Theoretical Developments Pertaining To Personal Space and Crowding.
Wicker, Allan W.
This document discusses research in the context of four basic issues in the area of crowding and personal space. The research upon which the author draws is from a series of three laboratory studies of the effects of manning levels on group experiences, performance, and verbal interaction. In these studies, groups of male college students worked on a task which required: (1) fewer than the number of persons present over-manning); (2) precisely the number of persons present (adequate manning); and, (3) more than the number of persons present (undermanning). The four issues relating to this research are discussed, and the theoretical developments which evolved are reviewed. (Author/PC)
