Machiavellianism, Discussion Time, and Group Shift
Lamm, Helmut; Myers, David G.
Social Behavior and Personality, 4, 1, 41-47, 76
Social-emotional and rational-cognitive explanations of group risky shift on choice dilemmas (hypothetical life situations) were evaluated by comparing shift in groups of low Mach (emotional) and high Mach (non-emotional) subjects. Effects of Machiavellian beliefs on social functioning are examined. Group composition was not observed to affect shift magnitude; evidence was obtained that high Machs are more astute social observers. (SBP)
