Eighty-nine college-aged males were tested on their ability to pick up nonvocal indicants of social interest shown by females. Half of the group then received repeated feedback about the females' true levels of interest. As a result of training, subjects improved in their ability to discriminate interest. This effect generalized to new females, and it led to an improvement in actual social skills as shown in role-played heterosocial interactions. The value of experientially rather than instructionally based training in social sensitivity and social skills is discussed.
