Agreeing Response Set: Statistical Nuisance or Meaningful Personality Concept?
Blau, Gary; Katerberg, Ralph
Perceptual and Motor Skills, v54 n3 (Part 1) p851-57 Jun 1982
Two predictions derived from the view that agreeing response set is a personality manifestation were tested: (a) nay-sayers maintain more belief consistency than do yea-sayers, and (b) nay-sayers are more intellectually oriented, while yea-sayers are more emotionally oriented. Both predictions were supported using Air Force trainee subjects. (Author/RD)
