Message Valence, Familiarity, Sex and Personality Effects on the Perceptual Distortion of Height.
Hensley, Wayne E.; Angoli, Marilyn
This study examined the effects of message valence, familiarity, and communicator sex on the perceptual distortion of height. Additionally, the relationships of self-esteem and independence of judgment to perceptual distortion were studied. A group of 139 volunteers from a basic communication course were randomly assigned to one of the eight conditions of the study. Results indicated that familiarity with the message source and the sex of the communicator were predictors of the perceptual distortion of height. (Author)
