(p.15) 2 Suspiciousness of Experimenter's Intent
Artifacts in Behavioral Research

William J. McGuire

Oxford University Press

Three stages in the life of an artifact are (a) ignorance of its existence, (b) coping with the artifact, and (c) exploiting it for what it can tell us about human behavior. This chapter focuses on the subject's suspicions of the experimenter's intent, with special emphasis on strategies for recognizing, coping with, and exploiting this source of artifact.

Keywords:   suspiciousness, experimenter's intent, attitude formation, attitude change, ethics of deception
