The first comprehensive theoretical formulation of the way people use information they receive about their social environments to make judgments and behavioral decisions, this volume focuses on the cognitive processes that underlie the use of social information. These include initial interpretation, the representations used to make inferences, and the transformation of these subjective inferences into overt judgment and behavior. In addition, it specifies the role of affect and emotion in information processing, and the role of self-knowledge at different stages of processing. The the

Perspectives on anger and emotion by Robert S Wyer( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, Berkowitz develops the argument that experiential and behavioral components of an emotional state are affected by many processes: some are highly cognitive in nature; others are automatic and involuntary. Cognitive and associative mechanisms theoretically come into play at different times in the emotion-cognition sequence. The model he proposes, therefore, integrates theoretical positions that previously have been artificially segregated in much of the emotion-cognition literature. The breadth of the implications of Berkowitz's theory is also reflected in the diversity

The automaticity of everyday life by Robert S Wyer( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Skinner argued so pointedly, the more we know about the situational causes of psychological phenomena, the less need we have for postulating internal conscious mediating processes to explain those phenomena. Now, as the purview of social psychology is precisely to discover those situational causes of thinking, feeling, and acting in the real or implied presence of other people, it is hard to escape the forecast that as knowledge progresses regarding social psychological phenomena there will be less of a role played by free will or conscious choice in accounting for them. In other words, bec

Stereotype activation and inhibition by Robert S Wyer( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of social sterotypes as a basis for judgments and behavioral decisions has been a major focus of social psychological theory and research since the field began. Although motivational and cognitive influences on stereotyping have been considered, these two general types of influence have rarely been conceptually integrated within a common theoretical framework. Nevertheless, almost every area of theoretical and empirical concern in social cognition--areas such as the interpretation of new information, memory and retrieval processes, impression formation, the use of heuristic vs. analyti

Understanding culture : theory, research, and application by Robert S Wyer( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains contributions from 24 internationally known scholars covering a broad spectrum of interests in cross-cultural theory and research. This breadth is reflected in the diversity of the topics covered in the volume, which include theoretical approaches to cross-cultural research, the dimensions of national cultures and their measurement, ecological and economic foundations of culture, cognitive, perceptual and emotional manifestations of culture, and bicultural and intercultural processes. In addition to the individual chapters, the volume contains a dialog among 14 experts in the field on a number of issues of concern in cross-cultural research, including the relation of psychological studies of culture to national development and national policies, the relationship between macro structures of a society and shared cognitions, the integration of structural and process models into a coherent theory of culture, how personal experiences and cultural traditions give rise to intra-cultural variation, whether culture can be validly measured by self-reports, the new challenges that confront cultural psychology, and whether psychology should strive to eliminate culture as an explanatory variable
The Content, structure, and operation of thought systems by Robert S Wyer( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If anyone deserves the title ""father of social cognition, "" it is William J. McGuire who, along with his wife and colleague Claire V. McGuire, has written the target article for this volume. The culmination of many years of work, the article discusses their highly developed theory of human thought systems, and establishes many new directions for theoretical and empirical inquiry. Equally important, however, are the chapters -- written from many different theoretical and empirical perspectives -- that challenge various assumptions underlying the McGuires' work. In addition to examining implica

Non-intellective factors associated with scholastic achievement by Glenn Terrell( Book )

5 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonintellective factors associated with academic achievement in college were investigated in three phases of research--(1) personality and motivational correlates of academic aptitude and performance among students who had completed at least 1 year of college were examined, (2) data were collected from freshman students before they entered college, and (3) questionnaires were administered to students to determine the particular goals they believed were important to them and the perceived relevance of good grades and achievement-related activity. Various conclusions were presented on the relevance of academic achievement to goal attainment. Students who believed that academic achievement was a necessary condition for attaining their goal performed better than students who believed that academic achievement was not so essential. The importance of attending college, assessed independently of the reason for its importance, was related positively to performance among both males and females. (Tc)
