Beyond prejudice as simple antipathy: hostile and benevolent sexism across cultures.
TLDR
These results challenge prevailing notions of prejudice as an antipathy in that BS (an affectionate, patronizing ideology) reflects inequality and is a cross-culturally pervasive complement to HS.
What's in a name: implicit self-esteem and the automatic self.
TLDR
Findings support the notion that implicit self-esteem phenomena are driven by self-evaluations that are activated automatically and without conscious self-reflection.
Seeing One Thing and Doing Another : Contrast Effects in Automatic Behavior
Research on automatic behavior demonstrates the ability of stereotypes to elicit stereotype-consistent behavior. Social judgment research proposes that whereas traits and stereotypes elicit
The Cessation of Rumination Through Self-Affirmation
Drawing from self-affirmation theory (C. M. Steele, 1988) and L. L. Martin and A. Tesser's (1989, 1996) theory of ruminative thinking, the authors hypothesized that people stop ruminating about a

Research on automatic behavior demonstrates the ability of stereotypes to elicit stereotype-consistent behavior. Social judgment research proposes that whereas traits and stereotypes elicit
When stereotypes get in the way: stereotypes obstruct stereotype-inconsistent trait inferences.

Results of a series of 5 experiments suggest that specific spontaneous trait inferences become obstructed by inhibitory processes when behavior is inconsistent with an already activated stereotype.
The relation between perception and behavior, or how to win a game of trivial pursuit.
TLDR
Results of the experiments revealed that prolonged priming leads to more pronounced behavioral effects and that there is no sign of decay of the effects for at least 15 min.

When Pinocchio acts like a human, a wooden hand becomes embodied. Action co-representation for non-biological agents
TLDR
The present findings provide evidence for the assumption that motor simulation strongly depends on higher order processes and investigate whether action co-representation depends on the perceived animacy of the non-biological interaction partner.
