Social Comparison as a Basis for Evaluating Others.
Sanders, Glenn S.
Journal of Research in Personality, v16 n1 p21-31 Mar 1982
Discussed whether similarity affects the relationship between comparison and other-evaluation. Subjects read about an emergency, estimated their reaction, and evaluated a target who failed to help. Results showed increasing discrepancy between self and other's reactions led to more negative evaluations if self and target were the same sex. (Author/JAC)
