Perceived Arousal, Focus of Attention, and Avoidance Behavior
Carver, Charles S.; Blaney, Paul H.
Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 86, 2, 154-62, Apr 77
Attribution theory holds that perceived arousal may cause a person to draw an inference about his emotions and base his subsequent behavior on that inference. Recent research suggests, however, that this account does not entirely explain the influence of false arousal feedback on simultaneously occurring avoidance behavior. Proposes a behavior model based on self-awareness theory. (Editor/RK)
