Are they really out to get us? Examining Interpersonal Perceptions in an Intergroup Context
Social Perceptions Self-perception: Does Mr. Smoker think he is smart? Other perception: Is Mr. Smoker smart? Metaperception: Does Dr. Nonsmoker think that I am smart? Usually predicted by self perception
Background Social Perceptions What forms them? Are they accurate? Intergroup perceptions Social identity differences Why are intergroup perceptions special? In-group & out-group bias Social stigma Sources in perceptions
Who cares? Mr. Smokers Metaperception Dr. Nonsmokers Perception ?
Why SRM? Multiple sources in perceptions Social context Perceptions not independent Sources function at dyad and group level
Conclusions Source patterns Individual & relationship sources in evaluation Differences in metaperception (smokers) Bias or Accuracy? Smokers less accurate ONLY in mixed groups Why different pattern? Identity differences motivate? Concern directed toward me? Did self-perception do it?
Design Considerations Population base rate Fewer (self-identified) smokers Order of interactions Shared v. unshared contexts Inferences from mixed contexts Compare to homogeneous situations
