Willful acts are familiar experiences in daily life. Experiences such as having pancakes for breakfast, making a doctor’s appointment, and watching the evening news on television are perceived as volitional behaviors, which are the result of deliberate decisions or intentions by an individual. Consistent with this intuition, many contemporary models in social psychology incorporate the assumption that intentions are the proximal antecedent of human social behavior. This chapter considers the nature and origins of behavioral intentions, the explicit and implicit beliefs and attitudes on which they are based, as well as their causal effects on behavior.

Keywords:   intention, explicit attitudes, implicit attitudes, behavioral, social psychology
