How Well Do Our Attitudes Predict Our Behavior: *Well-Known Examples of Attitude-Behavior Inconsistency
Understanding the attitude-behavior relationship is to provide well-known examples of attitude-behavior inconsistencies, which have very obvious and negative repercussions. One example is the infamous Biblical story of Peter’s denial of knowing Jesus. In Matthew 26:31–35 we read an account of Peter’s attitude toward Jesus. At the end of this passage Peter says, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!” (New King James Version). Later in the chapter, however, Peter denies knowing Jesus three times—twice to young servant girls. This can be found in Matthew 26:69–75. Additionally, this story introduces controlling features of the attitude-behavior relationship such as…CONSIDER: 1) the role of external influences of attitude; 2) the role of external influences on behavior; and 3) the importance of attitude awareness (Snyder & Swann, 1976). For example, in most translations, verse 75 uses the word “remembered,” clearly suggesting Peter was not aware of his attitude when he was acting until he heard the rooster crow. Other instructive questions for this example include: Answer the following questions and post your thoughts.
