Вера в превосходство своей страны, ее индивидуальные и страновые различия

С. 1545-1555.
Фабрикант М. С., Магун В. С.

The paper presents the results of a comparative cross-cultural research on belief in one’s country being better than most other countries. The research findings demonstrate that the strong belief in preeminence prevails over disbelief in most, but not all countries. Belief in preeminence of one’s country was found to be the strongest in the most and the least economically advanced countries, due to the objective recognition of the state of affairs and to the defensive psychological reaction respectively. The countrieds in between enjoy the least favorable opinion in their populations, which constitutes yet another dimension of the middle income trap
