The negative responses correlated a mean score of 3.24 with a standard deviation of 2.77. This demonstrates that just over 70% of those who participated in the Warm control group returned positive responses with both standard deviations within an acceptable level of around 2.8. This is clear evidence that the inclusion of the central trait independent variable of Warm did significantly influence the dependant variable outcome in favour of positive comments thus collaborating Asch’s hypothesis.
