Effects of argumentation on self-reported extraversion and attitude toward it
Two experimental studies (Ns = 363 and 215). We investigated how processing positive and negative information regarding extraversion (Study 1: watching a lecture; Study 2: elaboration one’s own arguments) can affect self-reports on this trait and attitude toward it. The experiments included three waves of measurements with argument manipulation (in favor or against extraversion) immediately prior to Time 2.
