Acting contrary to our professed beliefs or the gulf between occurrent judgment and dispositional belief

Pacific Philosophical Quarterly 91 (4):531-553 (2010)
Abstract
People often sincerely assert or judge one thing (for example, that all the races are intellectually equal) while at the same time being disposed to act in a way evidently quite contrary to the espoused attitude (for example, in a way that seems to suggest an implicit assumption of the intellectual superiority of their own race). Such cases should be regarded as ‘in-between’ cases of believing, in which it's neither quite right to ascribe the belief in question nor quite right to say that the person lacks the belief.
