'Impressions of message compliance-gaining strategies for considering robot rights


This experiment was conducted to determine interpersonal impressions of two types of compliance-gaining strategies (warning and obligation) used to ask for the consideration of robot rights. Findings demonstrated that the strategy of obligation produced higher levels of petitioner perceived caring (a factor of source credibility) and higher perceptions of task attraction. Social attraction, competence, and character did not significantly differ by type of message strategy utilized.
