Those that viewed either the ideological or technological film were more likely to change their opinion of the oil industry to a more favorable one.Calculate scores on the questionnaire based on this scale:Strongly agree=5, agree=4, neither=3, disagree=2, strongly disagree=1

(P2-P1)(N-P1)N=size of groupP2=final number of favorable scoresP1=number of initially favorable scoresFavorable Score =54 or higher The greatest effectiveness index for the post test and delayed post test was the ideological film with a 5.1 and 1.5.2nd greatest was the technological film with a 3.8 and 1.4.More Results

This table shows the number of scores that moved up, down, and remained the same after each movie.

Two conflicting ideas about this girl one saying she is right while the other saying she isnt which causes distress. In order to justify staying with her even though part of himself doesnt like her he tells himself that what they had was love.Cognitive DissonanceDonald Auster, Leon Festinger, Merrill Carlsmith
