Transcript of Impression Formation

Impression Formation
Fiske & Neuburg (1990)
• Perceivers prioritize category-based processes
• Perceivers are active
• Piecemeal-based impressions take much longer
• Category-based impressions are more cognitively
• Once a perceiver has begun to categorize, piecemeal
impressions become less likely
Impression Formation Models
Brewer or Fiske & Neuberg?
What is an Impression?
An idea,feeling or opinion about something or someone esp one formed without conscious thought or on the basis of little evidence. An effect produced on someone.
Impression Formation
How do we form judgements and impressions of
• Are some types of information more important than
• What are the approaches to the study of impression

Both models are serial in nature; they make the assumption that social categorization occurs automatically, and that the category-based judgements usually dominate impression formation. Only when an individual is motivated to do so or when categorical information is insufficient does a perceiver turn to individuating information to form an impression.
Brewer's Dual Process Model
Brewer’s dual process model proposes that perceiver engages in one of two processes during impression formation; a top down category-based evaluation driven process or a bottom-up individual-based evaluation driven process. The model leaves the perceiver with an either-or evaluation process; either the perceiver makes a category-based judgement or an individual –based judgement.
