  • Impression Management Strategy Ingratiation
  • Welcome to our programme. First let me apologize for our two other panelist who are unable to make it this evening. We continue our discussion on Impression Management.  Tonight we will be looking at just two of the five strategies today. 
  • Interesting, perhaps you can give us a simpler definition for our listeners at home. 
  • Impression Management Strategies 1. Ingratiation 2. Supplication 
  • Certainly, It means behaving in ways to make oneself likeable to others either by favours or flattery. 
  • Let's discuss Ingratiation. This term coined by Edward E. Jones is "a class of strategic behaviours illicitly designed to influences particular other person concerning attractiveness of one's personal qualities."
  • There are three types of Ingraition. Can you explain these for us. 
  • Impression Management Strategy Ingratiation
  • Acquisition - the goal of this is to obtain a reward or resources from the target 
  • Significance- the goal is to cultivate respect or approval from the target 
  • Protective- the goal is to prevent sanctions or negative consequences 
  • Impression Management Strategy Ingratiation
  • Any example you could provide us?
  • However, Gordon(1996) said that that the gestures should not be so spectacular that they leave others feeling Indebted. 
  • Seiter (2007), said that a waitress could get higher tips by complimenting the guest food choice. 
  • Now we look at Supplication. 
  • Impression Management Strategy Supplication
  • According to their book,  Jones and Pittman stated Supplication is "where individuals  advertise their weaknesses  or shortcomings in order to elicit an attribution of being needy from observers". 
  • Any example you could provide us?
  • So in other words,  it means behaving weak and incompetent in order to get help or sympathy
  • Impression Management Strategy- Supplication
  • For instance, a child may feign an inability to do homework. This provides the parent's nurturing side which results in parent doing the homework.  
  • Are there any draw backs to Supplication? 
  • Impression Management Strategy Supplication
  • It may work because of the social norms to help however most people to whom supplication is directed will quickly tire of repeated demands on their pity. Supplication is also distasteful to the supplicant because it is personally demeaning .
  • That's our time tonight. We do hope that you will join us next time. 
  • Thank You for joining us tonight. We will see you next week when we discuss Intimidation, Exemplificationa and Self-promotion.
