Learned Helplessness and Dependence on the Judgment of Others

Towns, James Philip 12 1900 (has links)
The relationship between learned helplessness (Seligman, 1975) and dependence on the judgment of others, as measured by an Asch-type conformity task, was investigated. Relevant constructs were reviewed: helplessness, locus of control, depression, self-esteem, dependency, and Campbell's (1961) epistemological weighting hypothesis. It was reasoned that experience with uncontrollable outcomes would not only result in learned helplessness, but also subjects' confidence in their own ability to control outcomes would be undermined so that they would rely heavily on the judgments of others as opposed to their own. Anxiety, psychological reactance, frustration, anger, or some combination of these resulting in a facilitation of performance was offered as a possible explanation for the unexpected results. Most plausible was that subjects' resulting performance deficits may have represented loss of initiative to control social reinforcers. It this is so, the deficits seen in helplessness experiments should be greater when test tasks involving social reinforcers are utilized. Further research is needed to clarify the interrelationship of helplessness, depression, and conformity/anti-conformity.

The faithful infidel : exploring conformity and deviance of category members

Syakhroza, Maima Aulia January 2018 (has links)
This dissertation explores the drivers of why organizations, as members of its market category, choose to conform or deviate from the category’s codes. In essence, codes are the social rules category members are expected to abide by and that underpin the very existence of a category. Given the importance of producer conformity in upholding a category’s continued existence, code deviance then seems a counterintuitive strategy to pursue. Nonetheless, organizations are known to defy codes in certain instances, sometimes even pairing the violation simultaneously with conformity to other codes. On top of this, organizations also seem to be able to strategically decide which codes they will abide by to a certain extent. Each of the three papers in this dissertation investigates why organizations may choose to either conform or deviate by, respectively, examining (1) the identity difference between the code violator with the potential adopter of the code violation, (2) the taken-for-grantedness of the category the organization is a part of, and (3) the individual status and organizational identity (insider-outsider) of the producer. The main overarching finding of this dissertation is that organizations will take into account both its internal resources and external socio-environment to decide which strategy it will deploy and whether it can afford to do so. All in all, this dissertation specifies how the three factors mentioned may affect an organization’s propensity to conform or violate to category codes.

Conformity, attitude toward authority, and social class

Welter, Alison Carol 01 January 1990 (has links)
This study examined the relationship between attitudes toward authority, identification with authority and conformity in relation to authority in American undergraduate college students. The study consisted of two parts. The first part examined correlates of attitudes toward authority according to social class. Undergraduate college students attending Portland State University canprised the samples in which two groups, a middle-class group and a working-class group of equal sizes (n=63), were formed. A relatively new, standardized measure of attitudes toward institutional authority, the GAIAS (Rigby, 1982), was used to measure orientation toward authority by social class. No significant differences in attitudes toward authority emerged for the two social class groups. A significant preference was shown 2 by middle-class students for self-employment over an organizational setting, while working-class students showed a preference for employment within an organizational setting. The second part of the study used a single subject sample (n=100), and compared responses of American college students on the GAIAS with those of English and Australian college students in the Rigby (1984) study. American college students were more pro-authority than Australian college students but not more pro-authority than English college students. In terms of political party affiliation and attitudes toward authority, American college student Democrats were more pro-authority than either the Australian or English Labour Party supporters. There were no significant differences between the U.S., Australian and English samples in attitudes toward authority for conservative political party supporters.
