Sample text

In order for the actor to match the outcome of his actions against some criterion and correct his own behaviour accordingly, some form of representation is assumed which is directly related to the action in the situation. It is on the basis of corrective action that we make inferences about the internal representations 18 of the actor. Or to put it in another way, by following the behaviour of the actor and changes in the situation over time, we can estimate the parameters of the representation which is implied by the covariation of responses of the actor and changes in the environment.

As can be seen in FIGURE IX positive and negative interactions are related in different ways to the evaluation of the stimulus persons. The higher the evaluation of a stimulus person is the more positive a S will interact with him. The opposite, however, is not true for negative socioemotional behaviour. There appears to be a monotonic relationship up to a certain point between evaluation and negative social interaction. Beyond this point the relationship is reversed. This finding is similar to the results obtained by Schachter (1951) with respect to the reaction to deviants in small groups.
