The "False Consensus Effect": An Egocentric Bias in Social Perception and Attribution Processes
Ross, Lee; And Others
Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, 13, 3, 279-301, May 77
Evidence from four studies demonstrates that social observers tend to perceive a "false consensus" with respect to the relative commonness of their own responses. Implications of these findings for our understanding of social perception phenomena and for the analysis of the divergent perceptions of actors and observers are discussed. (Editor/RK)
