Reacting to Reactance: An Interpersonal Interpretation of the Need for Freedom
Heilman, Madeline E.; Toffler, Barbara Ley
Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, 12, 6, 519-29, Nov 76
This study was designed to investigate the conditions under which the negative consequences of social influence attempts can be motivated by freedom-affirming interventions. The results, which suggest that in a social setting individuals' concerns about freedom are interpersonally motivated, are discussed in terms of their relation to and implications for reactance theory.
