1 st March 2011 Psych 178 – Lecture 16 The Person as a Judge Motivation involves much social interaction. Evolutionary biologists often state that groups survive better than individuals so our personal relationships are important. Meeting with Jane. I am there at 7pm but she doesn’t get there until 8:30pm. She says that she was late because she was watching the Oscars. I then tell her the relationship is over. I judge her as engaging in a social transgression. She should have been on time. Then she says no, you misunderstood me. I was going to tell you that I would be late because the bus could not go because the road was being paved. I tried to call you but your phone was off. Then I say she is forgiven. Experiment You are a teacher in a class. There are eight conditions representing the eight students in your class. They just took an exam. You evaluate them from +5 to –5. o Condition 1 – high ability, high effort, success = 4.5 o Condition 2 – high ability, high effort, failure = 2.0 o Condition 3 – high ability, low effort, success = 2.6 o Condition 4 – high ability, low effort, failure = -4 o Condition 5 – low ability, high effort, success = 4.8 o Condition 6 – low ability, high effort, failure = 2.3 o Condition 7 – low ability, low effort, success = 0
