Social Categorization and the Formation of Intergroup Attitudes in Children.
Bigler, Rebecca S.; And Others
Child Development, v68 n3 p530-43 Jun 1997
Studied effects of presence of novel social category on intergroup attitude formation in 6- to 9-year olds. Found that after four weeks of the functional use of color groups, children's attitudes showed consistent biases favoring their own group. Children with higher self-esteem showed higher intergroup stereotyping than did children with lower self-esteem. (Author/KB)
