The Creation of Defensiveness in Social Interaction.
Stamp, Glen H.; And Others
Communication Quarterly, v40 n2 p177-90 Spr 1992
Develops, examines, and confirms a four-factor conceptual model of defensiveness as (1) a self-perceived flaw the individual refuses to admit; (2) a sensitivity to that flaw; and (3) an attack by another person that (4) focuses on an area or issue that the attacker perceives as a flaw in the other.
