Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The believability of a message is grounded in almost everything except the content of the message--there is no self-warranted truth. Credibility is based on the believer's assessment of the form of the message, its source, and especially by triangulation with a reference point. The most common group of reference points are compatibility, authority, collegiality, and performance.
