Know-how Behavers, and Negative Choice Value in Competitive Situation

By Ed.D Raimo Laasonen


Abstract1 The purpose of the research was to find out: How does know- how behavior link with a negative choice value of persons in a competitive situation, and which background factors are responsible for behavioral dynamic. It was assumed that the joint background regulates the know-how of the behavers. When the know-how of the behavers gains in the process, then other behavers arouse a negative choice value toward the achievers, and oust them. The number of the subjects was 256 in groups of eight. Videotaped observation was the method of data gathering. The corrected coefficient of observer reliability was 0.920. χ2-test from a contingency table was applicable to position the observations in the right places. Accordingly, the coefficient of contingency was 0.145, and the correlation between classes was 0.151. Probabilities were used to scrutinize dynamic of behavior. The causation of the joint background falsifies in the hypothesis. The dynamic causalities corroborate: the perceivable gain of the know-how of the behaver motivates the arousal of the negative choice value in other behavers in a competitive situation. The theoretic result was: persons who are able to progress things are not the persons with the best of the knowledge because of obstacles put them out. 1 The paper is thank to Prof. Daniel Perlman at University of Calgary for his positive orientation to my research activities
