Abstract

This article analyzes the conditions common to three types of situations in which the correlations between verbally expressed attitudes about behavior and the behavior itself are likely to be high. The author suggests, in addition, that attitudes may have predictable relationships to behavior only in situationswhich are "highly institutionalized or routinized," and that they may have little predictive value in more loosely structured situations.
