SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY - A FUNCTIONAL APPROACH TO RECREATION
Abstract:The function of attitudes and/or behavior in most empirical studies is not fully understood. This study was undertaken to isolate some variables that are important in the f3rmulation of perspective and to use these variables to form homogeneous groups so that patterns among the variables may be used in future studies to better understand attitudes and/or behavior. The study was conducted in State College, Pennsylvania, and the subject content of the study was a public forested area known as State Game Lands 176. Both user and general populations of the State College area were sampled to obtain a diversity of results about the functional nature of attitudes and/or behavior. Results indicated that there were differences among individuals with regard to the larger context. These results are suggestive of research to relate attitudes and/or behavior to these functional dimensions to better understand the relationships among these variables.
