An attitude is a disposition towards an specific thing.

Attitudes are directional and thus can be towards, neutral, or away.

Some attitudes are the results of our previous judgments and decisions. One we decide that something is interesting, we then form an attitude of interest towards the object. Attitudes in part determine the direction of our awareness and attention and in part decide what passes the information reduction valve and makes it into conscious experience.

That the low status are not noticed by the high status is the result of an attitude of the high status that the low status are uninteresting.

The attitude we get depends on what kind of judgment we make. Whether something is fun, tasty or harmful are completely different types of judgments.

Mind Set
