- intergroup conflict - intergroup competition - relative group deprivation 3 elements from which perceptions of realistic threat arise

- promote group unity and cohesiveness - increase members' commitment to the group 2 purposes for rituals in socialization process
- associating with people who share beliefs supports them for having those beliefs and reinforces their correctness - isolates members from information that contradicts group ideology, and allows for rebuttal of any that does show up 2 effects of spending more time with hate group than with family, friends and others not in group
- disenchantment with ideology or tactics - pull of social relationships outside the group 2 most important reasons people leave racist groups

- "me is we" - "we're better than them" 2 responses to conflict-enhanced attitudes

- categorization-competition hypothesis - self-esteem hypothesis 2 hypotheses to explain ingroup bias effect
- intergroup bias "proves" ingroup is better than outgroup; increase in positive social identity leads to positive self esteem - people w/low self-esteem will engage in intergroup bias - people can defend against threats to self esteem w/intergroup bias 3 roles of self esteem in intergroup bias
- self-categorization - need for optimal distinctiveness - chronic social identities - individual differences 4 factors that affect activation and strength of social identities
- difference from outgroups - need to believe attitudes, beliefs and perceptions are correct 2 factors that motivate self-categorization
- people tend to join groups with attitudes and values similar to their own among other members - once people make a choice they tend to be committed to that choice and see it in positive terms 2 reasons self-categorization leads to stronger social identities than being assigned to a group
- if social identity processes can lead to outgroup derogation as well as ingroup favoritism - what determines if ingroup members will respond to aggression against a fellow group member - relationship between social identity & intergroup tolerance 3 issues in social identity theory that require more research
- protecting and enhancing the self and ingroup - affiliation and social harmony 2 important social goals that motivate people
