Role Playing, Issue Importance, and Attitude Change.
Sarup, Gian
Social Behavior and Personality, v9 n2 p191-202 1981
Contrasted three major theories on attitude change: cognitive dissonance, incentive, and social judgment. Results from student questionnaires provided little support for cognitive dissonance. Also provided credible, though overlapping, evidence for incentive and social judgment theories. Improvised role playing produced more change than did passive exposure but only for high-importance issues. (RC)
