Most Underappreciated

Charles S. Carver

Oxford University Press

Charles S. Carver reflects on his most underappreciated work: a study that explored the group of modeling effects—known as “releasing effect,” “response facilitation” effect, and mimicry—in which watching someone do something tends to induce the observer to do the same thing. Carver collaborated with three other researchers to test whether these effects might reflect close links in memory between information used for construal and information specifying how-to-do-it; that is, whether such effects might well be a sort of accessibility effect. He discusses the implications of the study in relation to an information processing account of how behavioral qualities emerge in the stream of behavior.
