Sample text

Consistency motives are also implicated in relationships between attitudes and behavior; positive evaluations and expectations give rise to trust and cooperative behavior that in turn justify positive feelings and future expectancies. Thus, the process of assimilation between self and others that underlies ingroup formation instigates a “benign cycle” of positive affect and behavior. The emphasis at this stage on positive affect and evaluations directed toward the ingroup is not devoid of implications for intergroup relations.

It is at this point that outgroups may become relevant to the maintenance or enhancement of ingroup identity. Social competition for positive valuation shifts initial indifference about outgroup outcomes to concern for the relative position of the ingroup over outgroups. Under these conditions, benefiting the ingroup comes at the expense of outgroup benefits, and positive outcomes for the outgroup may arouse resentment and antagonism if the comparison threatens important bases of ingroup evaluation.

There is even evidence that such ingroup benefiting is considered normative in its own right (Blanz, Mummendey, & Otten, 1997; Platow, O’Connell, Shave, & Hanning, 1995). Thus, allocations that favor the ingroup over the outgroup may be motivated primarily by intentions to be a “good” ingroup member, rather than by any sentiments against the outgroup. Inflicting harm, however, is not sanctioned so directly. It is more difficult to justify protecting the ingroup if it comes at the expense of inflicting harm on others (Mummendey & Otten, 1998).
