Abstract

Concerning national characteristics, previous work (Peabody, 1985) had generally shown agreement between student judgements and other information. The Russians were a dramatic exception.New evidence comes from ingroup judgements, where Russians were judged impulse-expressive. This disagrees with earlier outgroup judgements, but agrees with other evidence about Russian national character.
