Attitude Polarization as a Function of Thought and Reality Constraints
Tesser, Abraham
Journal of Research in Personality, 10, 2, 183-94, Jun 76

Specifically, it was predicted that polarization would be highest under thought with reality constraints absent, followed by thought with reality constraints present, followed by distraction.
