Question and answer
Explain how behaviors may influence attitudes. Include specific behaviors, such as role-playing, speech, and the foot-in-the-door phenomenon.
Psychologists define attitudes as a learned tendency to evaluate things in a certain way. This can include evaluations of people, issues, objects or events. Such evaluations are often positive or negative, but they can also be uncertain at times. [ For example, you might have mixed feelings about a particular person or issue. Researchers also suggest that there are several different components
that make up attitudes. An Emotional Component: How the object, person, issue or event makes you feel. A Cognitive Component: Your thoughts and beliefs about the subject. A Behavioral Component: How the attitude influences your behavior. ]

how does social cognition both positively and negatively affect one’s attitudes and behaviors
Weegy: Important factors that influence the impact of emotion appeals include self efficacy, attitude accessibility, issue involvement, and message/source features. [ Self efficacy is a perception of one’s own human agency, in other words, it is the perception of our own ability to deal with a situation. It is an important variable in emotion appeal messages because it dictates a person’s ability to deal with both the emotion and the situation. For example, if a person is not self-efficacious about their ability to impact the global environment, they are not likely to change their attitude or behavior about global warming.There is also considerable research on implicit attitudes, which are generally unacknowledged or outside of awareness, but have effects that are measurable through sophisticated methods using people's response times to stimuli. Implicit and explicit attitudes seem to affect people's behavior, though in different ways. They tend not to be strongly associated with each other, although in some cases they are. The relationship between them is poorly understood ] (More)
