AbstractThe goal of this research effort is twofold. First, this project revises and extends a propositional framework delineating the nature of the interplay between misanthropy and persuasion. Of special concern is the delineation of successful persuasion approaches given the validity of the underlying theoretical frame. A second major goal of this effort is to propose a series of studies designed to test theoretically-derived hypotheses. Study 1 tests theoretical hypotheses in a sample of adolescents. Study 2 extends earlier work on misanthropy by testing theoretical hypotheses in an adult sample (Alvaro & Burgoon, 1995) and replicating tests of some of the hypotheses from study 1.
