The assessment of national stereotypes: a methodological study


Jonas, Klaus; Hewstone, Miles (1986). The assessment of national stereotypes: a methodological study. The Journal of Social Psychology, 126(6):745-754.

Abstract

Assessed the effect of instructions on 60 German undergraduates' judgments concerning national stereotypes. Instructions to describe either typical individuals of different nationalities or different national groups had no effect on ratings of content, certainty, or uniformity of stereotypes. Percentage-based stereotype ratings were significantly less intense than point scales. Extent, percentage, and probability stereotyping instructions were highly correlated with liking for national groups. Ss generally viewed the stereotyping task negatively, especially in the probability condition. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
