Abstract:

The effect of information relevance and information availability on perceptual differences between Chinese and American nationals was investigated. Subjects participated in pairs as decision makers in a complex experimental environment. Participants perceptions of success, failure, and competence levels for their own team under conditions where judgments could be based on varying levels of relevant information and for a supposed opposing team under conditions where perceptions had to be inferred in the absence of information were obtained. Potential applications of the findings for military decision making and for a policy of military deterrence are considered. Author
