Sample text

Compelling evidence indicates that the illusion of transparency occurs in negotiations. Keysar, Ginzel and Bazerman (1995) demonstrated that negotiators tend to behave as if their negotiating counterparts had access to the negotiator’s privileged information about a given state of affairs. Vorauer and Claude (1998) showed that negotiators overestimated the transparency of their objectives: they presumed that their objectives were more readily apparent to others than was, in fact, the case. Biased Perceptions of Others There has been a great deal of research on the biased views that individuals hold about others (Fiske, 1993).

3 (continued) Nature of Motivational Bias Bias Research Findings De Dreu, Koole, and Steinel (2000): Accountability decreases fixed-pie perception and leads to more integrative agreements.

As Wade-Benzoni and her colleagues demonstrated, this, in turn, leads all parties to engage in overharvesting.

Relying on such arguments, De Dreu and his colleagues showed that people may be especially affected by the other’s loss frame as opposed to his or her gain frame. Specifically, when two negotiators have different frames, the gain-framed negotiator adopts the other’s loss frame more readily than vice versa. Another bias that garnered scholarly attention in negotiation research is anchoring and insufficient adjustment. According to Kahneman and Tversky, an anchoring-and-insufficient adjustment effect (referred to in this chapter as anchoring) occurs when an individual’s judgment is weighted by an initial datum and the individual fails to adjust his or her assessment of value sufficiently, given that initial anchor.
