responses to social influence
Responses to social influence

    • Reward or punishment driven
  • Identification-attractiveness
    • Desire to be like the person
  • Internalization-credibility
    • Congruency with our values.
compliance
Compliance

Behavior or attitude lives only as long as the threat of punishment or the promise of reward is present.

Doesn’t involve much thought about the behavior/attitude itself…simply a response.

identification
Identification

Lasting behavior/attitude if I continue to admire/value/like the person I’m conforming to.

May diminish because others become more important, more desirable.

May diminish because it becomes more important to me to be right.

internalization
Internalization

We take on as our own the belief or the attitude – no longer depends on reward/punishment or the model’s influence.
