dc.description.abstractThe present study examines the effect of implicit person theory and implicit world theory on migration decisions. These implicit theories are proven to be predictors of people’s tendency to stereotype and identity assimilation approach. They are believed to predict people’s quality of social relationships and adjustment in a new culture, which in turn affect their migration decisions. Implicit person theory moderated effect the effect of stereotype on intention to leave, but did not show significant effect on intention to leave. Implicit world theory did not moderate the effect of stereotype on intention to leave. Possible reasons for the non-significant results can be due to in-group favoritism towards home country and non-salient in-group identity towards potential host country.en_US
