Abstract:

A group measure of conformity behavior is described in which subjects are requested to choose one of two names which most aptly describes an ambiguous design, then are informed that on five“critical” designs they have chosen names with which the rest of the group disagrees. Several days later, the subjects are retested and the names chosen are compared with the result of the first test. "The results indicate that there is a significant relationship between conformity as measured by changes in judgment on an ambiguous design task and behavior in a nonlaboratory situation."
