Attitude (psychology)

An attitude is an expression of favor or disfavor toward a person, place, thing, or event (the attitude object). Prominent psychologist Gordon Allport once described attitudes “the most distinctive and indispensable concept in contemporary social psychology.”. Attitude can be formed from a person’s past and present. In lay language, attitude may refer to the distinct concept of mood, or be especially synonymous with teenage rebellion.
