Automatic (spontaneous) propositional and associative learning of first impressions

James S. Uleman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Contrary to the target article's claims, social cognition research shows considerable learning (about other people) that is relatively automatic. Some of this learning is propositional (spontaneous trait inferences) and some is associative (spontaneous trait transference). Other dichotomies - for example, between learning explicit and implicit attitudes - are also important. However conceived, human conditioning is not synonymous with human learning.
