Lay prototypes underlying the perceptions of stalking

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Stalking can be characterized as actions that lie on a spectrum of behaviors that can be interpreted as romantic by one and criminal by another. Prototype theory has relevance when it comes to classification and perceptions of individuals, situations and behaviors. We investigated how the average person defines the concepts of stalking using prototype methodology. Participants described a stalking scenario and completed a number of follow-up questions. Results indicate that males and females have different perceptions of these behaviors, having implications for research, legal practice, prevention and intervention.
