Abstract

A theoretic model of group member decision satisfaction based on a cognitive-motivational view of information processing in inferential contexts is presented. Unlike normative-rational theorists, we acknowledge that information-processing is biased by the decision-maker's motivations which are assumed to derive from situation specific goals. Information processing is assumed to be more extensive when judgmental accuracy is the salient goal and less extensive when other goals (e.g., self-esteem) are relatively more salient. The model analyzes the implications of this view for the relationship between confidence and satisfaction. Research propositions are advanced.
