Warmth, competence, and closeness may provide more empirically grounded starts for a theory of sentiments

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

Gervais & Fessler dissect the folk concept of "contempt" to argue for a functionally integrated model of attitudes and emotions in the context of social relationships. Existing studies of how evaluations of warmth, competence, and closeness shape people's reactions and behaviors towards others may help in operationalizing and testing the proposed model.
