Роль самокатегоризации в проявлении конформного поведения
In article discusses the impact of self-categorization on the conformal behavior and resistance to it. 61 subjects took part in the experiment. Two hypotheses were tested. 1. Conformity of behavior towards ingroup members higher than with outgroup members. 2. Perception of themselves as a member of the ingroup leads to increase of internal conformity, and perceptions of themselves as outgroup members leads to an increase in external conformity. The results showed that identification with the ingroup leads to sustainable behavior change (internal conformism). Assignment of themselves as outgroup allows the subjects to resist the influence of the group.
