The responses given to adjective check lists by 50 consistently pro-labor and 50 consistently anti-labor college students were compared. A highly unfavorable perception of workers was found to be an integral, if not a causal, factor in the attitude of the anti-labor group. The 2 groups did not differ in regard to their composite self-images, but tended to attribute more self-traits to the group preferred, respectively. The anti-labor group showed more sharply defined stereotypes than the pre-labor group. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
