Are there any robust social/goal priming effects (which cannot be attributed to Demand or Expectancy)? Pointers appreciated!

My colleagues and I have made multiple attempts at direct replication of social/goal priming effects, using blind experimenters to avoid expectancy effects. So far, we have found nothing--not even trends (see eg our two postings on PsychFileDrawer and our in-press paper on Williams and Bargh 2008). But we still haven't given up. Can anyone point us to any effect in this area that they have found to be robust and repeatable? (By "social/goal priming" I mean cases where incidental words, pictures, etc. produce changes in behavioral choices or motivations. Perceptual priming effects are very robust, of course.) If there is a social/goal priming study that is robust--ie repeatable in direct replications, not conceptual replication--we would love to hear about it so we can try it out... Thanks... -- Hal Pashler

Is it just a coincidence that the recent cases of psychology researchers "outed" for fabricating their data were in the subfield of social/goal priming? There was Stapel, then Smeesters, and now Sanna. Of course, one shouldn't dismiss an entire subfield of research because of the fraudulent actions of a few. But it definitely makes me wonder whether the chase for a sexy finding is inducing some of these researchers to engage in unethical behavior. Instead of trying to one-up each other with the next big clever finding (that gets gobbled up by the news media), I hope the big names in that subfield try their best to "clean the house" by promoting full transparency in their methods/data collection. They should set a higher bar for themselves, and routinely try to replicate their own findings (direct replications, not just conceptual replications) as well as that of others in the field. I think that's the only way for the subfield to regain the confidence of their peers in other domains of psychology.

This blog has an interesting discussion ("What's up with social psychology?") about whether it is just a coincidence:
