Performance Evaluation via Social Comparison: Performance Similarity versus Related-Attribute Similarity.
Gastorf, John W.; Suls, Jerry
Social Psychology, v41 n4 p297-305 Dec 1978
The effects of similarity of persons being compared on self-evaluations, satisfaction with own performance, and evaluation certainty were examined. One experiment manipulated similarity of test scores and found no differences in evaluation certainty. The second experiment also manipulated individual attribute similarity. Greater certainty was exhibited after comparision with others having similar characteristics. (Author/BH)
