Status Organizing Processes
The authors review theoretical and empirical work related to the theory of status characteristics and expectation states to this date,1980.
The Transfer of Status Expectations
The authors investigate transfer of a status intervention—introducing a specific status characteristic to reduce expectation effects of a diffuse status characteristic—across tasks and interactants. Experimental results ...
Status Characteristics and Expectation States: A Process Model
This technical report describes how status inequality can produce similar inequality of expectation states, and how the interaction process is affected by the status generalization process. It elaborates some ideas in the ...
Performance Expectations and Behavior in Small Groups
This Technical Report presents the theoretical account for relations among power and prestige behaviors in small groups and performance expectation states. It explains, among other things, the high correlations among several ...
Stability of Organizational Status Structures
The authors develop theoretical foundation for ideas in earlier technical reports and elsewhere on status consistency, focusing on effects for organizations. When inconsistent ranks of individuals and jobs become salient, ...
Evaluations and the Formation and Maintenance of Performance Expectations
The authors elaborate the theory and model presented inTechnical Report 18 on the formation and maintenance of performance expectation states in task groups, and their effects on group structure and interaction. The main ...
A Stochastic Theory for Self-Other Expectations
This technical report introduces the concept of self-other expectations (Joseph Berger’s  dissertation also includes that term, although defined slightly differently), and develops propositions about their behavioral ...
Status Conditions of Self Evaluation
The authors develop a theory of structural and interactional factors involved in processes by which evaluations from others can affect one’s self-evaluation. The theory defines an effective “source” of evaluations, and ...
Distributive Justice: A Status Value Formulation
The authors present a theory of distributive justice, feelings that a distribution of benefits and burdens to particular individuals is right and proper. They distinguish local systems and referential structures, and the ...
Performance Expectation and Behavior in Small Groups
This is a revision of Technical Report 18.
