In both samples defendants whose competence was doubted were perceived to be markedly more passive in decision-making, and somewhat less "compliant," than clients whose competence was not doubted.

4% were white, and 3% were of other ethnic origin. The mean age of the defendants was 30 years. THE NATURE OF COMPETENCE 21 Time Spent with Client Clients and attorneys were asked to estimate the amount of time spent with each other (in person or on the telephone) discussing the case.
