Two studies examined participants’ evaluations of ingroup or outgroup normative and deviant members and changes in agreement with a prescriptive norm. In Experiment 1 (N = 51), the normative target was either a full or marginal ingroup or outgroup member, and the deviant was a full member. In Experiment 2 (N = 113), both targets were full or marginal members, or one was a full member and the other was marginal. As predicted, maximal upgrading of normative members and downgrading of deviant…

Deviance Credit: Tolerance of Deviant Ingroup Leaders is Mediated by Their Accrual of Prototypicality and Conferral of Their Right to Be Supported

Leaders often deviate from group norms or social conventions, sometimes innovating and sometimes engaging in serious transgressions or illegality. We propose that group members are prone to be more

Social Dominance Orientation Boosts Collective Action Among Low-Status Groups

Among members of low-status groups, SDO consistently increased individuals' motivation to get involved in actions favoring the ingroup, by boosting their motivation to compete with the opposing high-status outgroup.

Norm violators as threats and opportunities: The many faces of deviance in groups

Group researchers have long been interested in how group members respond to deviance, defined as the violation of prescriptive norms about how members should think, feel, or act. Valuable

Time Heals All (Shallow) Wounds: A Lesson on Forgiveness of Ingroup Transgressors Learned by the Feyenoord Vandal Fans

This paper examines how a social threat posed by a deviant behavior affects second-hand forgiveness over time toward ingroup and outgroup transgressors. In Study 1, using real news reports, we

Egalitarian men: stereotypes and discrimination in the labor market

This article aimed to analyze the stereotypes attributed to "egalitarian men", understood here as men who support gender equality in relation to domestic and family responsibilities as well as

“Who do they think they are?”: social identity & conflict in small rural community

ABSTRACT Building resilience in small communities has increasingly become an aspirational objective to help adapt to challenging economic and social change. Communities with identified resilience

They did it again! Social control responses to repeated incidences of deviance in small groups / ¡Lo han vuelto a hacer! Respuestas de control social a la incidencia repetida de la desviación en grupos pequeños

Abstract Deviant group members who break group norms often challenge social validity and group locomotion, invoking varying types of social control responses. The current study (N = 95) investigated

Abstract The present paper focuses on the symbolic meanings of metaphors and their potential social effects. Specifically, it examines the case of the Jewish Ultra-Orthodox “Ḥardakim” poster campaign



Membership status and subjective group dynamics: who triggers the black sheep effect?

In 3 experiments, participants judged 2 ingroup or outgroup members who occupied 1 of 3 statuses--new members, full members, or marginal members who adopted a normative position and another supported a deviant position regarding a relevant issue.

Anti-Norm and Pro-Norm Deviance in the Bank and on the Campus: Two Experiments on Subjective Group Dynamics

In two experiments, participants evaluated other individuals who deviated in either an anti-or pro-normative direction relative to normative members of the same group. We predicted that individuals

Evaluations of and reasoning about normative and deviant ingroup and outgroup members: development of the black sheep effect.

Results confirmed a developmental increase in the BSE, the first time this has been demonstrated, and children's own evaluations of group members were mediated by their expectations about ingroup peers' evaluations.

The role of categorization and in-group norms in judgments of groups and their members

Four minimal group experiments tested the prediction that judgments of groups and their members reflect evaluations made simultaneously but independently at the within-group and intergroup levels. On

When bad becomes good (and vice versa): Why social exclusion is not based on difference.

The chapter describes our work on the Subjective Group Dynamics model. The model proposes that whether deviant group members attract positive or negative reactions depends on the implications of

Being better by being right: subjective group dynamics and derogation of in-group deviants when generic norms are undermined.

The authors predicted that derogation of group deviants depends on the extent to which in-group norms or values are validated or undermined in a social context. In Experiment 1 participants were less

Pro-norm and anti-norm deviance within and between groups.

Judgments and reactions to deviance depend on group membership and the direction of deviance, not just its magnitude, and are related to perceivers' identification with their own group.

When groups are wrong and deviants are right

How do group members respond when their group wrongfully punishes a group member? In two experiments, participants were presented with an ingroup member who argued for group change on moral

National identification as a function of perceived social control: A subjective group dynamics analysis

Based on subjective group dynamics theory (SGDT; e.g., Marques, Paez, & Abrams, 1998), we examine the effects of a group’s ability to effectively control its deviant members on participants’ ingroup

Protecting the ingroup stereotype: ingroup identification and the management of deviant ingroup members.

The level of identification had an impact on the modification of the ratings of environmentalists as a group, and this effect was mediated by the perceived typicality of the deviant environmentalist.
