A reprint of the article "Attitudes vs Actions," by Richard T. LaPiere which was published in the Volume 13, Number 2 issue of "Social Forces" is presented. In the article, the author analyzes the use of questionnaires in researching social attitudes. He narrates his own experience of studying European social attitudes on racial acceptance of ethnic groups and concludes that a verbal reaction to a symbolic situation as presented in a questionnaire does not reflect what the respondent would do when faced with an actual experience.
