NEED FOR COGNITION AND THOUGHT-INDUCED ATTITUDE POLARIZATION: EXAMINING POSSIBLE DEMAND CHARACTERISTICS
Abstract:Two sets of research demonstrate that individual differences in need for cognition moderate the effect of thought on attitude polarization. However, one set indicates that a low need for cognition is associated with greater thought-induced attitude polarization, whereas the other set indicates that a high need for cognition is associated with greater thought-induced attitude polarization. The present study provides evidence that the former, but not the latter, pattern of results may be due to demand characteristics.
