Effects of Situational Dimensions on the Use of Compliance-resisting Strategies
likelihood of use of strategies
This study examined the effects of situational dimensions (intimacy, dominance, resistance, rights to resist, relational consequence) and resister's gender on the use of compliance-resisting strategies. The participants (180 male and 192 female undergraduate students) were presented with one of ten hypothetical situations, which were high and low conditions of each of five situational dimensions. They were asked to imagine themselves in the presented situational condition, and to rate the likelihood of use of compliance-resisting strategies. ANOVAs of the situations (2) × genders (2) × strategies (7) regarding the likelihood of use of strategies were carried out in five situational dimensions. There were interactions between strategies and each of the following: dominance, rights to resist, and relational consequence dimensions. Moreover, there were interactions between the resister's gender and strategies in each dimension of intimacy and relational consequence. As a result, this study proved that the situational dimension and resister's gender sometimes affected the likelihood of use of compliance-resisting strategies.
