A Study of Those Who Influence and of Those Who Are Influenced in Discussion


by Ray H. Simpson - 1938

The primary purposes of this study were to construct and demonstrate the use of techniques for measuring two types of influence in discussion, the two types being influence of the individual in formulating the group decision and influence of the individual on the subsequent personal opinions of those with whom the discussion took place; to determine the relationship of certain personality and background characteristics to each of the two types of influence studied; to determine the relationship existing between personality traits and being influenced in discussion; and to discover whether esthetic opinions given subsequent to discussion with peers were more (or less) like those of experts than had been the prediscussion opinions.
