Extraversion and Reactions to Cognitive Inconsistency
Norman, Ross M. G.; Watson, Lynn D.
Journal of Research in Personality, 10, 4, 446-56, Dec 76
If a motive for cognitive consistency and the extravert's preference for the arousing and novel are opposing tendencies, one would predict that highly extraverted individuals will show less preference for states of cognitive consistency than those who are less extraverted. Two experiments test this prediction. (Author/RK)
