The disclosure of intimate information during initial encounters was examined within an attributional framework. One week after a short structured interaction with another (actually a tape recording) subjects were given either veridical or false feedback concerning their level of intimacy in that interaction. Results indicate that this feedback had a greater effect on the reported degree of liking for the other and the disclosure level in a second interaction than did the subjects' actual initial disclosure level. No sex differences were found.
