  Attitude (psychology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Attitudes are positive or negative views of an "attitude object": i.e., a person, behaviour, or event.
For example, A person may have a positive attitude towards blood donation but may not necessarily go to a blood bank to donate his blood.
There is also considerable research emerging on "implicit" attitudes, which are attitudes which people are not consciously aware of, but which have real effects as identified through sophisticated experiments using people's response times to stimuli (how quickly they can make judgments about them).

 The Way into Phenomenological Transcendental Philosophy from Psychology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Psychology failed, however, because, even in its primal establishment as a new kind of [science] alongside the new natural science, it failed to inquire after what was essentially the only genuine sense of its task as the universal science of psychic being.
In psychology the natural, naïve attitude has the result that the human self-objectifications of transcendental intersubjectivity, which belong with essential necessity to the makeup of the constituted world pre-given to me and to us, inevitably have a horizon of transcendentally functioning intentionalities which are not accessible to reflection, not even psychological-scientific reflection.
Psychology in the tension between the (objectivistic-philosophical) idea of science and empirical procedure: the incompatibility of the two directions of psychological inquiry (the psychophysical and that of "psychology based on inner experience").

 Anselm Strauss: The Concept of Attitude in Social Psychology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Study of attitudes as attitudes, i.e., the "nature" of attitudes-would be expected to yield knowledge concerning such problems as: how attitudes are formed, how they are changed, how they disappear, how they are related to personal organization, and how they influence behavior subsequent to their formation.
Attitudes, it is true, are used to "explain" behavior in the same sense that common sense explains behavior-"His attitude of curiosity prompted him to go to the window"-but this is not genuine causal explanation as the older sciences know it.
Attitude research is divorced from attitude theory as is evidence by lack of reliance upon attitude theory by investigators and lack of effective guidance of research by the body of theory.

If hunger is an attitude, sex is also an attitude, and all other physiological drives, such as the desire to be in a temperature similar to the temperature of the body and to withdraw from a painful stimulus.
Attitudes of single individuals are called "individual attitudes," and attitudes of groups are named "group attitudes." He points out that the group attitudes are collective phenomena and not mere summations.

than experimental, attitudes, as general and enduring orientations to and evaluations of the world, were popularized by social scientists in the early decades of the twentieth century.
It is uncertain whether or not the affective component of attitude actually came to inhabit a social world by default or by active pursuit of its advocates.
It stands to reason then that cognitive psychology would view emotion in two principal ways: as a dysfunctional response to experience that needed treatment and was therefore a clinical matter, or as part of the softer of the psychological subspecialties.

 Johannes Kottonau and Claudia Pahl-Wostl: Simulating political attitudes and voting behavior
According to the dominant effects of strong attitudes on behaviour (Bargh, Chaiken, Govender and Pratto 1992, Bassili 1995, Fazio and Zanna 1978, Fazio and Williams 1986, Jonas, Broemer and Diehl 2000, Krosnick 1988), the involvement, the ambivalence, and the extremity of a citizen's attitude are modeled as the determinants of participation in the election.
The continuous revision of the attitude in the light of new evidence is a core element of the on-line relationship between memory and judgement (Hastie and Park 1986).
The other individual citizen characteristics (the speed of memory decay, the probability of beginning an attitude exchange and the weight of interpersonal communication, the level of the confirmation bias, the accessibility threshold, and the sharpness of this threshold) are uniformly distributed within the ranges presented in the Appendix.

For example, the "Your Attitude Tool Kit" chapter opens with Harrell being notified in junior high school that he had to go to speech therapy for his stuttering, as he had for six years, and using affirmations to cure his stuttering on the spot.

 UT Psychology Faculty: Michael Olson
With respect to attitude formation and change, we have recently developed a conditioning paradigm that allows us to study how people come to evaluate objects in their environment either positively or negatively without their conscious awareness.
We’ve already demonstrated that attitudes can develop without such awareness (that is, subliminal persuasion) and we’re currently addressing questions regarding when evaluative conditioning occurs: for which kinds of people, and under what boundary conditions.
Using this paradigm, we’re investigating how racial attitudes, motivation to control prejudiced reactions, and contextual factors affect verbal and nonverbal behavior in interactions between Blacks and Whites.

 Definitions: Persuasion, Compliance, Propaganda, Brain Washing, & Social Psychology
Beliefs are things known or believed to be true, as opposed to attitudes, which are evaluations of objects that we think about.
Beliefs are important precursors to both attitudes and behavior, but are often used or created after the fact to defend attitudes and behaviors we already own.
Social Psychology is the science that studies individual beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors in settings where other people are present (or merely implied or imagined--which makes the definition pretty broad).

Social influence is at the heart of many pressing societal issues-promotion of healthful lifestyles, the raising of environmental consciousness, the effects of censorship, "image-processing" in politics, and ultrasophisticated advertising and marketing.
With lively examples from current events and popular culture, this book pulls together a wide range of research and theory about the psychology of attitudes, persuasion, and social influence.
To integrate the vast amount of material they use the recurring theme of "attitude systems," in which attitudes, cognitions, behaviors, and intentions can be affected by external agents of influence as well as influenced internally by each other.
