CONSERVATISM AND THE PERCEPTION OF SELF AND OTHERS
Abstract:A study of the extent to which people are likely to attribute traits to other people rather more than to themselves produced support for the Jones and Nisbett (1972) hypothesis. The level of trait attribution in the present study was, however, higher than that obtained in previous studies. Subjects low in conservatism assigned more traits than did those high in conservatism, but there was no interaction between conservatism and attribution of traits to self versus others. No support was found for the hypothesis that high conservatives make more extreme judgments than low conservatives.
