Internalization or Divergence? Re-Examining the Norm Formation Paradigms
West, Walter G.; Williams, J. Sherwood
Sociology and Social Research, 62, 4, 596-607, Jul 78
Examining the norm formation process in terms of internalization versus conditioning, this study concludes that Sherif's 1935 model of norm formation (internalization) is questionable, suggesting, rather, that with the internalization of group norms there appears to be a tendency for individual judgments to diverge when returned to individual judgment sessions.
