Document Summary

Processing models are used to describe how people make social adjustments: ex: ability to make non biased judgments depends on cognitive demands accompying those judgments. Everyone makes snap judgments but then we evaluate our judgment. B/c older adults may have lower levels of cognitive processing, they may not have the proper judgments towards situations. Means the way people form and revise first impressions. Cognitive resources influence social judgment: ex: of people using diagnostic trait information (order in which -/+ info is given about person influence first impression) Hess and pullen suggest older adults may rely more on life experiences and social rules of behavior opposed to their interpretation. Older adults may have negative bias: do not correct initial impressions b/c negative info is more striking to them. Less likely to use detail in forming impressions. Means when we are faced with new situations, we draw on past experiences stored in memory.
