Attitudes, Cognition, and Nonverbal Communicative Behavior.
Feldman, Robert S.; Lobato-Barrera, Debra
In the first of two experiments, positive and negative expectations about a teacher were induced in a student who was about to be taught by that teacher, and both verbal and nonverbal measurements were taken. Results showed that subjects responded quite directly to the experimental manipulation. In the second experiment, a student simulated some of the behavioral manifestations of positive or negative expectancies suggested by the results of the first experiment and observed the effects upon the teacher. The results here showed that the rated adequacy of performance of the subjects differed significantly according to the nonverbal behavior of their student. Previous research has shown that cognitive level and nonverbal behavior are related as well. (DS)
