The origin of the halo effect

The origin of the halo effect

Psychologist Edward Thorndike first wrote about the halo effect in his 1920 paper "A Constant Error in Psychological Ratings". He notes that people tend to think of a person in general as relatively good or rather inferior and to judge the qualities of a person by this general feeling.

Thorndike does not use the term 'halo effect' in the paper but does use the word 'halo' when referring to this phenomenon.
