Abstract:

The study investigated the effects of partner-induced and experimenter-induced affect upon Ss performance on various tasks. Partner-induced affect was manipulated by administering a measure of positive interpersonal affect Izard, 1962 and pairing similarlyscoring Ss, both at the high and low ends of the continuum. Experimenter-induced affect was either positve or negative. Sex of Ss also was controlled. The tasks were administered to pairs of Ss. Tasks 1 and 2 required only individual effort, the partner serving only to record responses. Tasks 3, 4, and 5 required cooperation of Ss and creativity in varying degrees. Task 6 required cooperation and agreement. Task 7 was a rating of partner. Results show dissimilar effects between partner-induced and experimenter-induced affect. Direction of the effects seems to be specific to the type of task and to the sex of S. Author
