    This article is based on a dissertation submitted to the Department of Psychology, Stanford University. The research was generously supported by NIMH training grant MH12283 in social psychology, the Boys Town Center for Youth Development at Stanford University, and NIMH grant MH27543 to Philip Zimbardo. While the research was conducted, the author held first a predoctoral fellowship from NSF and then a Research Service Award from NIMH. The author is especially grateful to Philip Zimbardo for his help and encouragement during every stage of the project, and would also like to thank Albert Hastorf and Daryl Bem for their advice and suggestions.
