Spontaneous Trait Inference

Spontaneous Trait Inference refers to the automatic process by which individuals infer certain personality traits or characteristics of others based on limited information or observations.

Unconscious Inference

Unconscious inference refers to the cognitive process in which individuals make assumptions or draw conclusions without consciously being aware of the reasoning or evidence behind their conclusions.

Together, spontaneous trait inference and unconscious inference play a significant role in how individuals form initial impressions and make judgments about others based on minimal information or brief encounters.
