Abstract

Male subjects were exposed to a female confederate who violated procedural rules early, in the middle of, late, or never in a series of fifteen trials in a problem-solving situation. The earlier the female violated norms the less her influence, the more disliked, and the less desirable as a co-worker she became. A previous study with male confederates and male subjects indicated that early nonconformity led to increased influence and increased desirability as a co-worker but greater dislike. Difficulties faced by those ascribed low status in achieving high status are discussed.
