Savoia- Explanations of Conformity

social identity theory relevant group norms are constructed from the positions held by ingroup members in relation to positions assumed to be held by outgroup members
group think the defective group decision-making process that leads to poor decisions
dispositional characteristics that lead to conformity low self-esteem, high need for social support and approval, high anxiety, and feelings of low status in the group
risky shift the tendency for group discussions to produce riskier decisions than those reached by group members working on their own
group polarization the riskier group decisions if the members' initial tendency is to be risky, or more cautious group decisions in those case where the members' initial tendency is to be cautious
social comparison theory group members seeking acceptance by the group shift their initial views in the direction of the group social norms
informational influence when we accept the views and attitudes of others as valid evidence about how things are in a particular situation
normative influence this type of influence is based on our need to be liked and accepted by others
dual-process models people conform because they want to be right and they want to be liked
referent informational influence we conform out of a sense of belongingness and by doing so we form and maintain desired social identities
