Formation[ edit ] According to Dooblearning can account for most of the attitudes we hold. The study of attitude formation is the study of how people form evaluations of persons, places or things. Theories of classical conditioning, instrumental conditioning and social learning are mainly responsible for formation of attitude.
Unlike personalityattitudes are expected to change as a function of experience. This concept was seen as the "Mere-Exposure Effect". Mere repeated exposure of the individual to a stimulus is a sufficient condition for the enhancement of his attitude toward it. For example, consistency theories, which imply that we must be consistent in our beliefs and values.
As with any type of heritability, to determine if a particular trait has a basis in our genes, twin studies are used.
Attitude change Attitudes can be changed through persuasion and an important domain of research on attitude change focuses on responses to communication. Experimental research into the factors that can affect the persuasiveness of a message include: These are characteristics that refer to the person who receives and processes a message.
One such trait is intelligence - it seems that more intelligent people are less easily persuaded by one-sided messages. Another variable that has been studied in this category is self-esteem.
The mind frame and mood of the target also plays a role in this process. The major source characteristics are expertise, trustworthiness and interpersonal attraction or attractiveness. The credibility of a perceived message has been found to be a key variable here; if one reads a report about health and believes it came from a professional medical journal, one may be more easily persuaded than if one believes it is from a popular newspaper.
Some psychologists have debated whether this is a long-lasting effect and Hovland and Weiss found the effect of telling people that a message came from a credible source disappeared after several weeks the so-called " sleeper effect ". Whether there is a sleeper effect is controversial. Perceived wisdom is that if people are informed of the source of a message before hearing it, there is less likelihood of a sleeper effect than if they are told a message and then told its source.We have detected that you are using a touch device.
