THE EFFECT OF BEHAVIORAL COMMITMENT AND ABILITY DISCREPANCY ON ATTITUDINAL PERSISTENCE
Abstract:Behavioral commitment and negative task discrepancy were manipulated in a 2 x 2 between-groups factorial design in order to observe their effects on attitudinal persistence on feminist issues and perceived threat of a trivia test score. Results indicated that non-active feminists perceived a greater threat from a discrepant test score than active feminists. Non-active feminists also showed greater agreement to a feminist point of view than active feminists as a result of experiencing discrepancy on a self-relevant task.
