Status Characteristics and Social Interaction
The authors review literature on effects of status differences on interaction and formulate general principles of status generalization to explain them. Next they conduct direct tests of the explanation in an experimental ...
Paths of Consistent and Inconsistent Status Information and the Induction of Relevance
The concern is to determine the process by which directly relevant, and inversely relevant characteristics function to affect expectation states. Results of a four-condition experiment showed that dissimilarity alone of ...
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 ...
Multi-Characteristic Status Situations and the Determination of Power and Prestige Order
This technical report builds on the research reported in Technical Report 32. It reports a second experiment investigating how two status characteristics affect expectations and power and prestige. The theoretical goal ...
Do Sociological Theories Grow?
The authors claim that theoretical growth is often obscured by a narrow definition of “growth,” one that emphasizes only empirical support for a unit theory. They introduce the idea of theoretical research programs, ...
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

A Bibliography of Expectation States Research
This bibliography is a revised and expanded version of working paper 100.
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 ...
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 ...
