Length: 2 pages (616 Words)
Attitude refers to the evaluations that people make on the ideas, other people, events, and objects (Carpenter and Huffman 517). They can be either negative or positive. Attitudes that guide behavior and decisions based on conscious beliefs are called explicit attitudes. And those ones that guide behavior and decisions based on unconscious beliefs are called implicit attitudes. Attitudes include three components: emotional, behavioral and cognitive. Emotional component involves individual’s feelings, for example, a person who is affraid of snakes affects their emotions. With certainty, the cognitive component includes an individual’s beliefs similarly like a person believes that snakes are dangerous. A behavioral component refers to how attitude affects in which way people behave or act, for example, person will avoid snakes when seeing them (McLeod 1).
