This book explores how interrupters and their targets are perceived
in terms of status and likability. In Experiment One, participants
listened to a brief audiotaped conversation in which one person
interrupted the other five times. Results indicated that
interrupters were perceived as more dominant and more influential
than non-interrupters, and that targets of interruption were viewed
as less dominant, influential, and competent than non- targets.
Furthermore, interrupters were liked less than non-interrupters. In
Experiment Two, four confederates (two men and two women)
systematically interrupted nave participants while discussing an
article. Confederates were viewed as more dominant, influential,
and less likable in the interruption condition than in the control
condition. Targets of interruption rated themselves as less
influential in the interruption condition than the control
condition. As expected, interrupters, especially female
interrupters, were liked less than those who did not interrupt. The
theoretical and practical implications of these findings are
