Stubs about findings

Dr. Simon Moss

This page presents some stubs--that is, preliminary extracts--about key findings.

CORRESPONDENCE BIAS

Individuals tend to assume that observed behaviors correspond to genuine internal dispositions. Positive moods exacerbate this correspondence bias (Forgas, 1998)

TRUTH BIAS

Individuals tend to assume that other people are speaking truthfully (e.g., McCornack & Parks, 1986).
