Confirmatory Bias in Evaluating Personality Test Information: Am I Really That Kind of Person?
White, Michael J.; And Others
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v40 n1 p120-26 Jan 1993
College students (n=54) who believed they possessed one of four personality traits considered whether trait description of them based on objective personality test was accurate. Subjects were likely to agree that they were accurately described by trait if trait was consistent with existing self-perception, regardless of whether trait was positive or negative. (Author/NB)
