PERSONALITY OF THE JUDGE IN RECOGNITION OF DEPARTURE FROM ROLE EXPECTATION
Abstract:It was proposed that an observer must be unusually sensitive to role requirements to be able to use information from an actor's behavior when he deviates from role expectations in a more subtle way than failing to follow role-playing instructions. Other-directed (interpersonally sensitive) or inner-directed (interpersonally less sensitive) students observed a videotape of a person acting in either a role-consonant or a role-deviant manner. As expected, there was significantly (p < 0.005) less variance among the ratings when other-directed observers viewed rote-deviant behavior than in the other three conditions. There was also greater polarization in the ratings of true position of the role-deviant interviewers by the other-directed observers than in the other three conditions (p < 0.01).
