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.

Narrative forms of mental representation and their influence on comprehension, communication and judgment, have rapidly become one of the main foci of research and theory in not only psychology but also other disciplines, including linguistics, sociology, and anthropology. No one has been more responsible for the awakening of interest in this area than Roger Schank and Bob Abelson. In their target article, they argue that narrative forms of mental representation, or ""stories, "" are the basic ingredients of social knowledge that play a fundamental role in the comprehension of information conve

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

13 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 329 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
Stereotype activation and inhibition by Robert S Wyer( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 285 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

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

5 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 59 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)
