More About This Book


This book explores how interrupters and their
targets are perceived in terms of status and
likability. In Experiment One, participants listened
to a brief audiotaped conversation in which one
person interrupted the other five times. Results
indicated that interrupters were perceived as more
dominant and more influential than non-interrupters,
and that targets of interruption were viewed as less
dominant, influential, and competent than non-
targets. Furthermore, interrupters were liked less
than non-interrupters. In Experiment Two, four
confederates (two men and two women) systematically
interrupted naïve participants while discussing an
article. Confederates were viewed as more dominant,
influential, and less likable in the interruption
condition than in the control condition. Targets of
interruption rated themselves as less influential in
the interruption condition than the control
condition. As expected, interrupters, especially
female interrupters, were liked less than those who
did not interrupt. The theoretical and practical
implications of these findings are discussed.
