Estes, Linda, 1957- January 1987 (has links)
The effects over time of written divergent and convergent models on subjects' creative responses to Guilford's Alternate Uses and Consequences were examined, using forty-eight undergraduate students at the University of Arizona. Subjects were divided equally into divergent model, convergent model, and control groups, and were tested and retested one week later. A multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) subjects' scores for flexibility, fluency, and originality, was found to be significant. Univariate F tests, discriminant function analysis, and Tukey's tests were performed to clarify the nature of significant effects. Results were found for scores on flexibility and originality, but only for the convergent group. Convergent modeling significantly increased the number of convergent responses given by subjects, and the convergent group gave significantly more original responses than the other two groups. The effects of modeling on the convergent group persisted over time, and a significant practice effect was noted.

Preference for a heterospecific demonstrator in a territorial dove

Dolman, Carrie January 1991 (has links)
This thesis examines the hypothesis that social learning in Zenaida dove (Zenaida aurita) functions primarily in a mixed species foraging context. The field study recorded foraging associations and interactions between Zenaida doves and other species. The Carib grackle (Quiscalus lugubris) was the most frequent foraging associate of Zenaida doves. / The laboratory study consisted of two experiments where conflicting information about a novel food type and novel food-finding problem was provided simultaneously by a conspecific and a heterospecific (grackle) demonstrator. Both experiments showed that not only could Zenaida doves learn from another species, but that they preferred the heterospecific demonstrator over the conspecific. The results suggest that social information may be obtained more readily from foraging associations rather than interference competition and that the role of conspecifics may be overemphasized in cultural learning.

Serving Up Crime: A Social Learning Perspective of Employee Deviance in Restaurants

Pantaleo, Katherine 17 August 2011 (has links)
This study sought to examine the relationship between employee deviance within restaurants and the components of social learning theory. The behaviors examined in this research were based on the research of Robinson and Bennett (1995, 2000) who defined employee deviance as two different categories of behavior – one directed against the organization (organizational deviance, production deviance, and property deviance), and the other directed against coworkers (interpersonal deviance). While the literature on employee deviance in restaurants is limited, very few studies take into account more than one type of deviant behavior. In addition, some studies suggest that social learning theory may play a role, but few, if any, studies have examined the relationship between this theory and the types of deviance that are prevalent in the restaurant industry. Therefore, the current study was one of the first examinations of the process of social learning within the restaurant industry, making a contribution to the literature on social learning theory and employee deviance in restaurants. This dissertation used a survey methodology to understand the extent of involvement in deviant behavior by restaurant employees, their coworkers’ involvement in a number of deviant behaviors, the perceived reaction of managers and coworkers to these behaviors, and individual attitudes and perceived attitudes of coworkers of deviance in the restaurant. The survey was administered via the Internet to a random sample of college students. Only those with experience in the restaurant industry were able to participate in the study. The results from this study suggest that while employee deviance occurs in the restaurant industry, it is not prevalent. Although restaurant employees may be involved in certain types of deviance more than others, they are not deviant often. In addition, only two of the measures of social learning, “imitation” and “definitions”, were significant in explaining increased involvement in employee deviance. This indicated that these two components help to understand employee deviance in restaurants more than the other social learning components. / Dr. Jamie Martin Dr. Jennifer Roberts Dr. Erika Frenzel Dr. Timothy Austin
