Effects of Controversy on Cognitive Perspective Taking
Tjosvold, Dean; Johnson, David W.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 69, 6, 679-85, Dec 77
Thirty undergraduate students discussed a moral issue with a confederate who held either the same or the opposing opinion. Subjects in the controversy condition indicated more accurate understanding of the confederate's reasoning than their counterparts; however, noncontroversy subjects erroneously believed they understood the confederate's reasoning better than did those in the controversy condition.
