Personal Hypothesis Testing: The Role of Consistency and Self-Schema.
Strohmer, Douglas C.; And Others
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v35 n1 p56-65 Jan 1988
Studied how individuals test hypotheses about themselves. Examined extent to which Snyder's bias toward confirmation persists when negative or nonconsistent personal hypothesis is tested. Found negativity or positivity did not affect hypothesis testing directly, though hypothesis consistency did. Found cognitive schematic variable (vulnerability for depression), related to confirmatory or nonconfirmatory personal hypothesis testing about depression. (Author/KS)
