Naive realism in everyday life: Implications for the dynamics of social conflict

The article suggests that the person's social understanding rests on three related convictions about the relation between his or her subjective experience and the nature of the phenomena that give rise to that subjective experience (three tenets of naive realism). These convictions create barriers to successful negotiation and dispute resolution relevant to the pursuit and perception of equity, biased con-strual and reactive devaluation. They also create the impression (often a false one) of the difference and/or incompatibility in the parties' basic interests and values. However the naive realism convictions that others share our way of responding to the world can be helpful in some situations.
