Controversy within a Cooperative or Competitive Context and Cognitive Perspective-Taking.
Tjosvold, Dean; Johnson, David W.
Contemporary Educational Psychology, v3 n4 p376-86 Oct 1978
Undergraduates discussed a moral issue with a confederate who had the same opinion (no controversy) or opposite opinion (controversy) within either a cooperative or a competitive context. Subjects in the controversy conditions indicated more conceptual conflict, engaged in more information seeking, and were more accurate in taking the cognitive perspective of the confederate.
