Etude de la valeur sociale attribuée à la préférence de la consistance dans le cadre des relations intergroupes.

Abstract : The present research aims at exploring the social value of preference for consistency (PFC) in intergroup relations. In a first study (identification paradigm, N = 103), participants (students from University versus IUT – Institute of Technology) filled out the PFC scale on their own behalf, as an ingroup member and as an outgroup member (order counter-balanced). In the second study (judge paradigm, N = 219), participants were exposed to a high, low or moderate PFC target. First, they had to identify target’s group membership and then to attribute personality traits referring to social desirability and social utility dimensions to the target. Results show both an ingroup bias (IUT students) and an outgroup favoritism (University students) through attribution of consistency (Studies 1 and 2). Results also show that participants make more favorable judgments towards a high PFC target than towards a low or moderate PFC target, but solely on the social utility dimension (Study 2). Results are discussed in term of status primed with intergroup relationships and consistency attribution.
