Effects of Positive and Negative Feedback and Degree of Discrepancy on Responses to Test Results
Freeman, Harvey R.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, 20, 6, 571-572, Nov 73
Subjects received falsified psychological test results that were discrepant in either positive or negative directions with their own reports on self-referring attitudes. Subjects who received negative feedback were more likely to derogate the interpreter, whereas subjects who received positive feedback were more likely to change their self-reports in the direction of the interpretation.
