On the Cutting Edge: the Relationship Between Expertise and Social Influence in Evaluating Normative and Innovative Opinion.

The present research examines the importance of the social knowledge signaled by statistical majorities and minorities (i.e., normative adherence versus innovative thought). In particular, we posit that the majority position signals reliance on the socially-accepted position, whereas the minority position signals reliance on an alternative to the socially-accepted position.
