The Electronic Mirror: Human-Computer Interaction and Change in Self-Appraisals
Computers in Human Behavior Volume 14, Number 1, ISSN 0747-5632
Compares humanlike versus machinelike interactional styles of computer interfaces, testing hypotheses that evaluative feedback conveyed through a humanlike interface will have greater impact on individuals' self-appraisals. Reflected appraisals were more influenced by computer feedback than were self-appraisals. Humanlike and machinelike interface styles did not have significantly different effects. (Author/AEF)
