Feature-Based Biases in Black Americans: Evidence from Focus Groups

Research on Afrocentric features bias has generally focused on the instigator’s perspective and examined how perceivers react toward Black Americans with different degrees of Afrocentric features. However, the effects of Afrocentric features from the target’s perspective are still unclear. We conducted 15 focus groups at two different institutions in the US to explore the nature […]

Can Authoritarianism Lead to Greater Liking of Outgroups? The Intriguing Case of Singapore

Since Adorno, et al.’s (1950) seminal work “the Authoritarian personality”, empirical research has consistently demonstrated the seemingly inextricably link between authoritarianism and negative outgroup attitudes. We tested this relationship in the unique context of Singapore (N=249), where for over fifty years, a firm authority (i.e., government) has been very explicitly endorsing diversity and multiculturalism, hence […]

Experiences of Perceived Subtle Discrimination by Migrants and Refugees in Australia.

Migrants and refugees encounter many challenges in the post-migration context which can impede successful resettlement (Colic-Piesker & Tilbury 2003; Casimiro, Hancock & Northcote 2007). The current study seeks to understand the ways in which post migration experiences can affect wellbeing. A particular focus is on the experiences of acculturative stress and the subsequent coping strategies […]

Gender Stereotypes about Math Ability in Germany and Japan

In Germany and Japan, women are underrepresented in STEM. Although cross-cultural studies found gender similarities in math ability (e.g., Else-Quest et al., 2010), women’s math ability is stereotyped as lower than men’s (e.g., Nosek et al., 2009). Negative stereotypes contribute to women’s underrepresentation by reducing their math performance (stereotype threat; e.g., Steele & Aronson, 1995). […]

Four Dimensions of Stereotypes: Evidence from Romania and a Seven-Culture Test of Structure Reliability

Research has shown that stereotypes can be summarized into dimensions of warmth (perceptions of one’s sociability) and competence (perceptions of one’s abilities). Yet, to date there is no systematic investigation of whether stereotypes about out-groups can have a more intricate structure. This paper will provide evidence for a four-dimension structure of stereotypes based on data […]

Defensive Response to Stereotype Threat Among Thai Female Employees: The Effects of Social Comparison and Sexism

Although gender stereotype has been prevalent in many social contexts in Thailand – advertisements, literature, films, and education, the effect of gender stereotype have not been investigated empirically. Most of the relevant studies were conducted in western contexts especially in laboratory settings. The current study, therefore, examined whether social comparison and perceived sexism would lead […]

Comt Gene Polymorphism and Prefrontal Cortex Activity Affect Individual Differences in Racial Categorization Threshold

The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is the main brain region associated with cognitive flexibility. Our study investigated the relationship between PFC activity and COMT Val158Met gene polymorphism, which has been reported to be related to cognitive flexibility, and how categorical threshold is modulated by this relationship in Japanese participants. PFC activation was measured using functional near-infrared […]

Effect of Imagined Contact on Attraction to Unattractive Women

Previous research has demonstrated that imagined contact is useful to reducing prejudice against minorities(e.g. Turner & Crisp, 2010). In this research, we investigated whether imagined contact with an unattractive woman would change the perception of physically unattractive women. Single male participants (n = 98) were randomly assigned to one of the two conditions. In the […]

Fellowmen or Intruders? Prejudices towards Domestic Migrant Workers in China

While prejudices towards foreign immigrants have been widely reported, prejudices towards domestic immigrants are still scarcely studied. Unlike immigrants from foreign countries, domestic immigrants usually share the same nationality and ethnicity with locals, thus eliciting more ambiguous reactions. The current research aims to explore prejudices towards domestic immigrants, especially those so-called ‘migrant workers’ moving from […]
