2 dimensions of building credibility
- (1) Competence: Influenced by intelligence, expertise, and knowledge on the topic.

three types of credibility
- (1) Initial: judgments made before you speak (based off attire, appearance, etc).
- (2) Derived: judgments made while you present your arguments and evidence.
- (3) Terminal: judgments made as your wrap up your speech.
- Credibility therefore, is dynamic, you can be credible at one moment then no longer be credible in the next.

Elaboration Likelihood Model
Variations in the nature of persuasion depend on the likelihood that receivers will engage in information about elaboration which exists on a continuum (thinking about).
Central Route Processing
- part of ELM
- high amounts of elaboration
- "high thinking" Judgement arguments long lasting
Peripheral Route Processing
- Part of ELM
- Mindless processing of the source's characteristics.
Social Judgement Theory
On a continuum of positions on any given topic, people have a preferred position (Anchor)
Social Judgement theory continuum
- latitude of acceptance
- latitude of noncommittment
- latitude of rejection
Perceive something in the attitude of rejection as further away from the anchor than it really is = REJECTION
Judge things in latitude of acceptance to be closer than they really are to our anchor = PERSUASION
Extended parallel process model
Fear appeals are most effective when a person cares about an issue and perceive that he or she can deal with the situation.
two components of fear appeal
Perceived threat and Perceived efficacy

- Susceptibility- Can this happen to me?
- Severity-Is this an issue worth being frightened over?
two primary ways people deal with fear appeals
- Danger control = People try to reduce the dangerYou want people to do this.They need to both be scared (high threat) and believe they can remove the threat (high efficacy)
- Fear control = People try to calm themselves and stop being scaredYou don't want people to do this. Here there's high threat but low efficacy
