Abstract : The effects of prior agreement from others on one's subsequent willingness to agree was examined under both individual and group oriented conditions. Under both orientations, the level of subsequent agreement was noted following unanimous (100%) prior agreement from others, strong partial (75%) agreement, and still lower levels of prior agreement (50% and 25%). The applicability of social exchange formulations was tested under circumstances where the prospect of future gain from the exchange was minimal. (Author)
