    Jones and Harris (1967) subjects read either a pro- or an anti- Castro speech that was allegedly  written under either free-choice  conditions or at the experimenter's  request.  The subjects' task in the experiment  was to infer the true attitude of the  author of the speech.

    Jones and Harris (1967) Not surprisingly, the results showed that  subjects inferred a pro-Castro attitude  from a pro-Castro speech and an anti- Castro attitude from an anti-Castro  speech when the speeches were said to  have been written under conditions of  free choice.
