PROATTITUDINAL BEHAVIOR

Proattitudinal behavior is behavior that reflects and is in agreement with a held attitude. For example, if one dislikes a certain teacher, one is less likely to pay close attention or learn as easily from that teacher even though he or she is just as qualified to teach the subject matter as a beloved teacher..
