The Negativity Effect in Interaction: It's All in Your Point of View.
Kellermann, Kathy
Human Communication Research, v16 n2 p147-83 Win 1989
Examines research on negativity effect (the disproportionate weighing of negative information in comparison to equally valenced positive information in the formation of judgments). Investigates the informativeness explanation of the negativity effect in the context of conversational interactions. Rejects a reliance on evaluative extremity and evaluative valence as determinants of informativeness. (MM)
