Locus of Control-Based Argumentation as a Predictor of Group Polarization.
Alderton, Steven M.
Communication Quarterly, v30 n4 p381-87 Fall 1982
Focuses on personality as a predispositional factor which is predictive of the direction of both persuasive argumentation by group members and, subsequently, decision shifting. Tends to validate the value theory of polarization by showing that persuasive argumentation can mediate the effect of personality on decisional shifting. (PD)
