Influences d'un contexte informationnel, d'une préférence et d'une norme conventionnelle sur l'évaluation du confort thermique

Abstract : This research studies the role of a relatively fixed optimum for ambient temperature upon dichotomized, preferential judgments (e.g., too warm, or too cold). Experimental subjects were presented sets of numerals representing different ambient temperatures. The sets varied in both range and skewing. Contrary to the usual range-frequency effects of the entire set of presented stimuli, subjects ratings were well anchored at an optimal temperature; told to imagine how people living in either warm or cold climates would react, subjects anchored the optimum close to a conventional norm. Those contextual effects that were obtained were consistent with the hypothesis that the range-frequency compromise operates separately on each side of the optimum when judgments are thus dichotomized, as though there was one context for warmer temperatures and another for colder temperatures.
