Norm Formation or Conditioning? A Study in Divergence
Williams, J. Sherwood; And Others
Small Group Behavior, 6, 2, 141-149, May 75
This article examines the idea that social norms are not permanently incorporated into a person's personality. The author presents the argument that in a group situation subjects are conditioned toward similarity while afterward, the individual's behavior gradually returns to an "operant level". Tests show this argument to be essentially true. (Author/EJT)
