Cognitive Processes in Person Perception.
Lingle, John H.; And Others
Two experiments are reported examining the influence of the relationship between judgemental sets on the processing and integration of information in a person perception task. Experiment I showed that subjects made an occupational judgement about another more quickly when the judgement was similar rather than dissimilar to a previous occupational judgement. Experiment II found that subjects processed trait information in such a way as to make decision relevant information more accessible in memory. Conceptual and methodological implications of the two studies are discussed for future investigation of the cognitive processes involved in interpersonal judgements. (Author)
