Changes in Personality Impressions Formed by Status-Oriented Individuals who Differ in Need-for-Social Approval (NA) or Locus-of-Control Reinforcement.
Reuder, Mary E.; And Others
Examined are changes in personality impressions formed by status-oriented individuals who differ in Need for Social Approval (NA) or Locus of Control of Reinforcement (I-E). Subjects recorded their initial and final personality impressions of speakers ascribed either high or low social status. High NA observers (or Externals) showed most positive changes in responding to low-status speakers. Low NA's were sensitive to high-status persons. Results extend Iverson's earlier findings and also definitional personality predictions. (Author)
