Levels of Going Beyond the Information Given Construct accessibility increases the likelihood that the construct will be used to encode a stimulus Wyer and Srull (1980) present subjects with behavior description that were ambiguous with traits the subjects were more likely to judge it being a clear instance of a trait if it had previously been activated Going beyond the information given: identifying attributes of stimulus that were not observable, inferring additional attributes A subset of identifying attributes is often sufficient to make an equivalence judgment or match Identify based on clothing or looks Once a stimulus has been identified other nonidentifying properties are likely to be attributed to stimulus Identifying attributes of a construct are part of lexical knowledge, because linguistic production and comprehension require the ability to identify instances of construct People go beyond the information by also identifying a stimulus with a construct. A person may assign dispositional traits to stranger that are characteristic with a significant other Difference between identifying a stimulus with a construct versus as a construct are: that people are less likely to assign the missing essential or defining attribute to the construct when identifying with the construct Identification as conscious = a set. Unconscious – priming People who were in a positive priming session remembered two weeks later that the stimulus person was more desirable These ratings increase over time.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
