Overview of Asch
dominant in the 1940s and 1950s.� In
his experiments on impression formation, Asch showed that the meaning of a
personality trait depended upon other traits attributed to the same
person.� For example, the intelligence
of a fewone who is "intelligent" and "cold" is not the
same as the intelligence of a fewone who is "intelligent" and
�warm�.� Though controversial
(especially among advocates of elementist models), the importance of his
results is uncontested.� The network of
inferences from one characteristic to another is being studied still; Asch’s
technique of comparing impressions generated by descriptions differing in
only one characteristic is still popular.
ranks among the greatest works in psychology.�
He persuasively presents the person as complex but comprehensible,
both socially situated and independent.�
Asch walks the difficult but productive middle ground between
behaviorism and psychoanalysis, nature and nurture, elementism and holism,
experimentation and naturalistic observation.�
This book shaped a generation of social psychologists.� (The current generation may find it a
useful antidote to ANOVA-ridden journals.)�
While crises in social psychology come and go, this text remains a
sovereign remedy. a few examples:
A common behaviorist belief in the 1940s and 1950s was that a person could be completely understood by studying the different parts or elements that make up that person.Asch rejected this line of thinking in favor of the gestalt principle that people were more than the sum of their parts.To help determine which approach was more accurate, Asch designed a series of clever experiments to reveal how individuals form impressions of other people.
Asch has extensive international experience; he opened a sales office in Germany covering eight European countries and has established distribution agreements with manufacturers in Italy, Germany, Japan, Korea and India.Asch has spent more than thirty years as a marketing and sales executive.Asch is a huge supporter of The Wounded Warrior Project and encourages everyone to support our injured heroes.Asch is the owner of LEDAZA INC., an outsourced business development firm in New York. His philosophy about life and business is “Question everything.Asch’s academic credentials include a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and an MBA in Marketing Management.Asch’s book “Are You Sure About That?” was published in July 2015.Asch’s hobbies include movies, reading, comedy, and jazz.From his early days watching his father manage the family’s grocery store to global travel and setting up international sales and distribution, he brings a vast array of knowledge that spans many industries including retail, high-tech, medical, manufacturing, and distribution.He is the proud father of four children and lives on Long Island with his loving wife who has dedicated her career to children with special needs.Life is about continuous progress not chasing perfection.”Mr.Zev Asch is an Adjunct Marketing Professor at Touro College.
