Bachmann, Manuel David ; Schmid Mast, Marianne (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2011 ; 2225.

Power was either manipulated through priming, role-play techniques, or assessments. Emotions were measured with self-report questionnaires. In Study 1, participants (N = 83) in either high or low power position received feedback from a virtual interaction...
