A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy in a Competitive Psychomotor Task
Dalton, John E.; And Others
Journal of Research in Personality, 11, 4, 487-95, Dec 77
This experiment attempted to support McMahan's (1973) attributional theory, which assumes that expectations reflect relatively fixed perceptions, and that people try to avoid making changes in these perceptions, and Frieze and Weiner's (1971) finding that success was attributed to internal factors more than was failure, while failure was more likely to be attributed to external factors.
