    Abstract:
    Administered a self-blame scale devised by the author to 490 Ss from 4 age levels ranging from 7-21. From this population, 144 Ss were selected: 12 high-blame, 12 middle-blame, and 12 low-blame Ss from each age group. Conformity score was computed as the frequency with which the selected Ss conformed to the erroneous line judgments of a simulated peer majority in the R. S. Crutchfield (see 30:2) situation. Findings suggest that self-blame and conformity are highly interrelated processes. Conformity was also found to be related to a self-blame minus other-blame score. Relationships among conformity, self-blame, self-esteem, and peer orientation are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved). © 1970 American Psychological Association.
