Social Roles, Social Norms, and Self-Presentation in the Quiz Effect of Ross, Amabile, and Steinmetz.
Walker, Iain; Gibbins, Keith
Journal of Social Psychology, v136 n5 p625-34 Oct 1996
Recounts an experiment where two groups of college students composed questions for a simulated quiz show and then answered each other's questions. They then answered questions comparing their performance with other groups. Proposes a social norm rather than attribution error explanation for the fact that groups consistently will underestimate themselves. (MJP)
