Are All Opinion Givers Opinion Leaders?: A Clarification of Constructs Based on Empirical Data." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Dresden International Congress Centre, Dresden, Germany, Jun 16, 2006 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2020-02-24 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p91554_index.html>

Abstract: Opinion leaders are a prime target group for any company. Studies on consumer behaviour support the importance of personal sources of information and influence. Still, careful attention should be given to methods of identifying these individuals.
We assess existing methods to identify opinion leaders. In particular, we address the question whether the most prominent construct, the King/Summers scale, is able to reliably and validly identify those individuals that perform as opinion givers.
On the basis of a survey of 10’100 respondents on money matters, we test this concept of opinion leadership. We show that without the benefit of ego-centred network analysis any study runs the risk of misjudging the importance of individuals identified as opinion leaders. We suggest a combination of network size and opinion leadership, arriving at a role differentiation of four groups. With this, we draft a communication model for active opinion leaders, communicators, silent experts and inactives.

"Myths about leaders: a multi-dimensional mapping of social representations of the “ideal political leader”" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISPP 31st Annual Scientific Meeting, Sciences Po, Paris, France, Jul 09, 2008 <Not Available>. 2020-02-24 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p255210_index.html>

Abstract: From the beggining of the 20th century, early socio-psychological theorising (especially LeBon and Tarde) has provided many disciplines of social science (as well as common sense) with persistent and strong psychological stereotypes about the “ideal leader”: borderline personality, manipulator of mass behavior, inspirator of collective ideals and symbol of fundamental values. The plethora of theoretical models about the “ideal leader” rooted in the classic persuasion theories and from applied disciplines of Psychology (i.e. Industrial – Organisational Psychology, Political Psychology) generally reproduce the false dichotomy “intrinsic individual trait vs acquired through skills-training.”
Our perspective, based in the epistemological tradition of sociocognitive constructivism, uses the aformentioned stereotypes as raw materials in order to evaluate their normative impact on social thinking.
In a survey with a representative sample of 1500 Greek voters, a multidimensional questionnaire structured on the central dimensions of social influence processes was used in order to assess the diverse representational contents of the image of the “ideal political leader.” Associations between these representational contents and various axis of political thought and behavior were assesed. The research findings are discussed in light of their significance concerning a sociopsychological contribution to the understanding of political leadership.

Abstract: This mixed method study is an attempt to glean a clearer understanding of educational leaders’ content knowledge of reading relative to instruction. It employs a comprehensive approach to understanding principals’ reading content knowledge, and how it relates to the concept of instructional leadership by looking at its relationship to both teacher knowledge and student achievement. Preliminary findings reveal that principals have varying views on how their levels of knowledge influence their teacher performance. Additionally, there are large differences in the level and perceived use of principal domain knowledge of reading based on socioeconomic status.

Abstract: This study investigated how media frames of two “axis-of-evil” leaders, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, influence people’s perceptions of the leaders. In particular, we examined the effects of two types of frames (enemy vs. dialogue partner) and two types of story focus (policy vs. personal), while controlling for people’s familiarity with and favorability to the leaders and their countries. Conducting a between-subjects experiment, we found that the enemy and dialogue partner frames of Ahmadinejad and Kim had a significant impact on people’s perceptions of the leaders as a threat to the United States and as being open to dialogue with the United States. Moreover, the impact of the enemy frame depended on whether news stories focused on policies of the leaders or their personal traits and political maneuvering. The influence of the enemy frame was stronger when the frame was used in a story focusing on personal traits of the leaders than on policies of the leaders. Our study offers important empirical evidence regarding how media frames influence audiences’ perceptions of foreign leaders. Implications of the study are discussed in terms of the media coverage of international issues.
