Couples' Cognitive/Affective Reactions to Communication Behaviors.
Floyd, Frank J.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n2 p523-32 May 1988
Examined "sentiment-override" hypothesis that couple members' cognitive/affective reactions to their partners' behaviors are insensitive to communication quality of those behaviors, and that cognitive/affective insensitivity obstructs interventions to improve communication. In 40 couples, found that only males displayed pattern of results consistent with hypothesis, although most subjects were insensitive to individual statements. (Author/NB)
