Effects of "Favorability," Modality, and Relevance on Acceptance of General Personality Interpretations Prior to and After Receiving Diagnostic Feedback
Snyder, C. R.; Shenkel, Randee Jae
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 44, 1, 34-41, Feb 76

The higher acceptance evidently resulted from the greater base-rate truthfulness existing in the favorable interpretation. (Author)
