Effects of evaluative (in-)consistency and perceived self-efficacy on attitude formation


Broemer, Philip; Jonas, Klaus; Diehl, Michael (2000). Effects of evaluative (in-)consistency and perceived self-efficacy on attitude formation. Swiss Journal of Psychology, 59(3):183-195.

Abstract

Hypothesized that attitude judgments about unfamiliar objects are affected by the evaluative inconsistency of relevant attributes. It was further predicted that individuals' perceived self-efficacy moderates the effect of inconsistency on attitude latencies: Individuals with high perceived self-efficacy in regard to systematic processing are expected to persist in their judgmental process and to show deliberative processing when information is inconsistent but not when it is consistently positive or consistently negative. Evaluatively consistent information should lead to an elimination of or even a reversal of this difference between high- and low-efficacy individuals.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
