Summary

The responses of a laboratory subject (S) to a counselor-accomplice and to the psychological treatment situation are examined by manipulating experimentally interpersonal attraction and communication discrepancy. Four treatment conditions were set up: (1) topic similarity and positive attraction for counselor, (2) topic discrepancy and positive attraction, (3) topic similarity and negative attraction, and (4) topic discrepancy and negative attraction. Each of three counselor accomplices saw 24 undergraduate volunteer Ss; six Ss in each of the four treatment conditions. Topic discrepancy and similarity were obtained from the Ss ranking of nine discussion topics in the order of preference. Ss evaluative attitudes about counselor helpfulness were obtained from a 13 point rating scale. A multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) was applied to the data. The major finding suggests that response to his counselor's influence attempt depends both upon his attraction toward the counselor and upon the congruency between the expectations of the counselor and the subject about discussion topics. (PS)
