DOMINANCE-SUBMISSIVENESS AS AN EFFECTIVE RESPONSE TO SITUATIONS AND AS A PREDICTOR OF APPROACH-AVOIDANCE
Abstract:The main and interactive effects of dominance on approach-avoidance behavior were investigated. Two levels each of pleasure, arousal, and dominance were combined in a fully factorial design. The results suggested that dominance may be more important when predicting approach-avoidance than previously believed. Earlier research, suggesting that individuals prefer submissiveness eliciting situations, is questioned.
