This research is conducted from the point of view of the theory of the core. In a series of 3 experiments, subjects have to come to a conclusion about the direction of a peripheral or a central element, presented alone or preceded by another central element or peripheral element. The direction of the peripheral elements is never affected by the mode of presentation, while that of the central elements is unstable. These results raise questions about the generating function of direction of the central elements of social representations.
