Does other-referent process invoke evaluation process?
This study examied whether friend-referential process invoked evaluation process or not by using task-facilitation paradigm(Klein, Loftus, & burton, 1989). Fourteen participants performed a series of initial and target tasks, which were either friend-referential("Does this word describe the friend?"), evaluative("Is the word socially desirable?"), or semantic("Is it difficulut to define the word?"). A combination of three initial and three target tasks made nine conditions. Comparisons among these condition showed that reaction times for target tasks were shorten when initial and target tasks were the same than when they were different. But the time required fot the evaluation target task was the same regardless of whether it was preceeded by the friend-referent or by the semantic task. Considering with the results of Nakao and Miyatani(2004) which showed that self-referential task did, but acquaintance-referential task did not facilitate the subsequent evaluation process, these results revealed that evaluation process is not evoked by the other-referential process, although referent person is a familiar friend.
