GRAVITATION TOWARD WALLS AMONG HUMAN SUBJECTS
Abstract:In two studies, subjects in a classroom corridor who walked near the wall (“gravitators”) were contrasted with those who walked near the center (“nongravitators”). Gravitators were lower than non-gravitators on Autonomy and Defendence and appeared to be less responsive to other persons. Gravitation is an innate behavior among some animals; among human beings there are marked individual differences. Some social encounters may involve gravitation toward the other person as an object.
