Brief Statement of Original Result From the abstract: "...a source's evaluations of other individuals can recursively transfer to the source, such that people who like others acquire a positive valence, whereas people who dislike others acquire a negative valence (Transfer of Attitudes Recursively; TAR)." Essentially, people who do not like others are not liked by different others. I replicated the 4th Experiment where source evaluations are given in the 1st person and both implicit and explicit measures are used.

Detailed Description of Method/Results All materials were acquired from the original authors and translated into Dutch. This replication was the "replication" half of a replication-extension study. All of the extension-related measures were after the original manipulations, materials, etc.

Participants observe a number of people making statements about other people who work with them in an office. Participants are asked to form an impression of the people as if they were just getting to know the people in the office. On the key trials, a person indicated they liked or disliked the other individuals in the office. After this task, participants completed explicit liking (1 not at all, 9 very much) and implicit liking (the AMP) measures in a counter-balanced order. The explicit and implicit measures for the target who either liked or disliked the others were the key dependent variables.

Two participants were excluded because they indicated that they were familiar with Chinese characters, like those used in the AMP, but including these participants does not affect the results and the results with the full sample are reported below.

On the explicit measure, the person who disliked others was seen more negatively (M = 2.16, SD = 1.64) than the person who liked others (M = 5.89, SD = 2.20), F(1,85) = 80.65, p<.001, np2 = .49. There were no main effect or interaction order effects (p > .52).

On the implicit measure (the AMP), the person who disliked others was seen more negatively (M = .44, SD = .22) than the person who liked others (M = .57, SD = .14), F(1,85) = 10.57, p=.002, np2 = .11. There was no main effect of order (p = .29), but there was a small interaction, F(1,85) = 4.12, p = .045, np2 = .05. When explicit was first, the effects of the condition on the implicit measure were much stronger, F(1, 85) = 13.79, p < .001, np2 = .14, than when the implicit measure was first, F(1, 85) = .75, p = .39, np2 = .009.

Explicit and implicit attitudes were significantly correlated, r (87) = .39, p < .001, consistent with the mediation reported in the paper. And indeed, explicit attitudes mediate the association between the like/dislike experimental condition and the implicit measure (indirect effect = 4.5, SE = 2.2, 95% CI .52, 8.73).

Any Known Methodological Differences
(between original and present study)?
The study was conducted in Dutch instead of English and with Dutch participants instead of Canadian participants. I also included additional measures after the manipulations and measures of the original study that I am not reporting this this replication report.
