(p.39) 3 Person Bins—Assembling Information According to Specific Persons

Kenneth H. Craik

Oxford University Press

The theme of this chapter deals with the ways in which each member of a person’s reputational network gathers and cumulates impressions, beliefs, and evaluations about that specifically identifiable person. The resulting network of cognitive nodes, or person bins, constitutes the distributive facet of reputation. The chapter reviews dynamic features of personal perception and cognition, such as the negativity bias. The domain of disreputable acts is explored by examining outcomes of legal actions for defamation. These analyses suggest that disreputable acts tend to fall within the categories of specific personality dispositions, such as high extroversion, low agreeableness, and low conscientiousness.

Keywords:   information storage, person bins, person cognition, negativity bias, disreputable acts, extroversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness
