dc.description.abstractBased 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.en_US
