Two experimental studies demonstrate that attitudes can bias the content of counterfactual thoughts, and that these biased thoughts in turn predict polarized attitudes. These effects were obtained regardless of whether explicit instructions for counterfactual generation were given. Furthermore, both studies demonstrate that these effects are mediated by judgments of future likelihood. Implications of these results for theories of counterfactual thinking and persuasion are discussed.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Crawford, Matthew T.</dc:contributor> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:creator>McCrea, Sean M.</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/11375/1/crawfordmccrea2004.pdf"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:28:02Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>When mutations meet motivations : Attitude biases in counterfactual thought</dcterms:title> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/11375/1/crawfordmccrea2004.pdf"/> <dcterms:issued>2004</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Journal of Experimental Social Psychology 40 (2004), 1, pp. 65-74</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Crawford, Matthew T.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>McCrea, Sean M.</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
