|Title:||Inter-group status and knowledge acquisition||Authors:||Cheong, Emil Shen-Li||Keywords:||DRNTU::Humanities||Issue Date:||2010||Abstract:||Based on Social Identity Theory, it was hypothesized that lower and higher status groups acknowledge the higher status group's superiority by perceiving its status-relevant knowledge as more useful than the lower status group's for performing on the status dimension. With high inter-group competition, each group's high identifiers may then want to acquire the higher status group's status-relevant knowledge more than the lower status group's, while preferring in-group over out-group status-irrelevant knowledge to affirm group identity. To test this, 142 Singapore university students believed they were assigned to one of two groups.||Description:||77 p.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/47062||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
