- Non-dominant responses - new, complex or untested responses that an individual had not or rarely used
- Social facilitation - a higher incidence of the predominant responses due to the presence of others
- Social inhibition - a lower incidence of non-dominant responses due to the presence of others
- Evaluation apprehension - a stressful situation of a man whose behavior is observed by others; it can cause the anxiety and lead to poor performance or to the performance improvement, depending on how much an individual the performance knows and how much he practiced it
- Attention conflict - a conflict between paying attention on the task, and paying attention to other persons present
