(p.159) Imputing Values to Missing Information in Social Judgment
Most Underappreciated

Ramadhar Singh

Oxford University Press

Ramadhar Singh reflects on his most underappreciated work: his research on social judgment based on information integration theory proposed by Norman H. Anderson. According to Anderson, judgment involves a chain of processes of valuation, integration, and response production. Valuation translates the physical stimulus into its psychological value and weight, whereas integration unitizes not only the value and weight of one piece of information but also those of other pieces of information available for judgment. Singh discusses the adding rule as opposed to the averaging rule for two pieces of information in any judgment in relation to imputations.
