Reports that N. Vidmar's recent attempt to reconcile his findings on the effects of group representation with a contradictory finding from an earlier experiment by D. Druckman (see record) is based on a misunderstanding of the procedures used in the earlier experiment. On the basis of a careful examination of the procedures used in both experiments to create "group-representing" and "self-representing" conditions, it is concluded that the results of neither experiment indicate, unambiguously, that representation per se exerts a significant influence on negotiation behavior.
