Headline text[edit]

Reference to 2006 paper in Annual Review of Psychology[edit]

I think it would be advised if this article could make use of an article that appeared in the Annual Review of Psychology for 2006 on attitudes. I shall give the full reference when I have found it. ACEO 18:42, 14 August 2006 (UTC) The reference is: Crano, W.D. & Prislin, R. (2006). Attitudes and Persuasion. Annual Review of Psychology, 57, 345-374ACEO 18:30, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

The reference for Zimbardo, et al. (1999) is missing! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:32, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Section on attitude assessment needed[edit]

There is no separate section on methods to assess attitudes.This is a major omission.Also, would it be good to have a section on how discourse analysis has challenged conventional beliefs about attitudes?ACEOREVIVED (talk) 20:28, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Not only is this discussion of attitude incomplete, the references are shoddy, Breckler, S. J., & Wiggins, E. C. (1992)should be 1989, there's a couple of references in the article that aren't listed, and so on. Furthermore, while APA referencing is understandable given the article, I think footnotes are more convenient overall, this is a webpage. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Niroztaken (talkcontribs) 19:06, 12 October 2009 (UTC) social psychology is key to behavour —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:58, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Couldn't agree more. This entire page needs a complete overhaul. There's an extreme lack of referencing and major theorists/theories aren't mentioned or are only mentioned in passing — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ponsy67 (talkcontribs) 07:50, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

I'd like to add my request for better referencing, please. The studies cited in the main article do not always appear in the reference list or in the list for further reading (the examples I looked up but could not find are Zimbardo et al 1999, Whitley and Kite 2010. Thanks for attention to this. 6/9/2012. [I'd sign this if I could but I can't get the tilde on my keyboard to work] — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:03, 6 September 2012 (UTC)


"The cognitive response is a cognitive evaluation of the entity that constitutes an individual's beliefs about the object." This sentence is difficult to understand and causes a lot of troubles. Please rearrange it and make it simpler and streamlined. ༄༅།།གང་ཐུ་ཡཱ།། (talk) 12:50, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Figure of Speech !!![edit]

Can anyone please give me an information as to which figure of speech does the word ATTITUDE come under ??.... The only information i got is that it is an Inflection of a Noun. Kinly provide your valuable answers — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:18, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Section on Attitude Structure Needed[edit]

It may be useful to include a section on the structural components of attitudes, for example, attitude accessibility and attitudinal ambivalence. Adding a section including these constructs may also provide an opportunity to include information concerning consistency between attitudes and behaviors. Whitmb11 (talk) 01:28, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

Have been trying to update this. Would love some help, though. Thosjleep 04:33, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Removed this section from the article[edit]

Replace if it seems relevant, but I don't think so Thosjleep (talk) 04:19, 11 September 2012 (UTC) The MBTI write-ups limit the use of "attitude" to the extraversion-introversion (EI) and judging-perceiving (JP) indexes.

The JP index is sometimes referred to as an orientation to the outer world and sometimes JP is classified as an "attitude." In Jungian terminology the term attitude is restricted to EI. In MBTI terminology attitude can include EI and also JP. (Myers, 1985:293 note 7).

The above MBTI Manual state ment, is restricted to EI," is directly contradicted by Jung's statement above that there is "a typical thinking, feeling, sensation, and intuitive attitude" and by his other uses of the term "attitude". Regardless of whether the MBTI simplification (or oversimplification) of Jung can be attributed to Myers, Gifts Differing refers only to the "EI preference", consistently avoiding the label "attitude". Regarding the JP index, in Gifts Differing Myers does use the terms "the perceptive attitude and the judging attitude" (Myers, 1980:8). The JP index corresponds to the irrational and rational attitudes Jung describes, except that the MBTI focuses on the preferred orientation in the outer world in order to identify the function hierarchy. To be consistent with Jung, it can be noted that a rational extraverted preference is accompanied by an irrational introverted preference. By Mr. M Amir Shehzad 625+6+

attitude and valence[edit]

As defined in this article, attitude sounds like but a funny (and wrong) synonym of Valence (psychology): the plain axis of positive/negative evaluation of any kind of thing. Why then 2 articles? denis 'spir' (talk)

There is no section critiques of the attitude construct[edit]

Could someone add a section on critiques - this article just seems to assume that the concept of an attitude is robust. Jamesks (talk) 10:21, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
