Interpersonal Attraction in a Seven-Person Mixed-Motive Game: Nobody Likes a Loser.
Ettinger, Ronald F.
This study of interpersonal attraction and perception attempts to analyze the effects of co-operative versus competetive behavior and social position. Findings from the research project reveal that there exists a positive relationship between attraction and co-operation. Character extrapolations reinforce the theory of rationalization for an unjust system of social position by a "Blaming the Victim" syndrome. (MML)
