Constraints on Excuse Making: The Deterring Effects of Shyness and Anticipated Retest.
Shepperd, James A.; And Others
Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, v21 n10 p1061-72 Oct 1995
Examined whether the apparent absence of an egocentric bias among shy individuals is reflected in their excuse making following poor performance and whether anticipating a challenge to one's excuses would dissuade even nonshy individuals from making excuses. Shy individuals refrained form making consistency-lowering excuses regardless of performance feedback and retest instruction. (JBJ)
