A Hierarchical (Multicomponent) Model Of In-Group Identification: Examining In Russian Samples

The aim of this study is to examine the validity and reliability of the Leach et al. model of in-group identification in 2 studies of Russian samples. In study 1, the confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the hierarchical model of in-group identification, which included the second-order factors of self-definition (individual self-stereotyping, and in-group homogeneity) and self-investment (satisfaction, solidarity, and centrality) fitted the data well for all four group identities (ethnic, religious, university, and gender) and was a better fit than the alternative models. In study 2, we examined the construct validity and reliability of the Russian version of in-group identification measure. Results show that these measure have adequate psychometric properties. In short, our results show that the Leach et al. model is reproduced in Russian culture. The Russian version of this measure can be used in future in-group research conducted using Russian-language samples.
