The Power Matching Effect: the Dynamic Interplay of Communicator and Audience Power in Persuasion
Three experiments demonstrate a power-matching effect. High power increases communicators’ generation of, and recipients’ responsiveness to, competent arguments. In contrast, low power increases communicators’ generation of, and recipients’ responsiveness to, warm arguments. Consequently, messages from powerful versus powerless communicators are more effective against recipients at the same level of power.
