One of humanity’s most pressing problems is the inequality between people from “developed” and “developing” countries, which counteracts joint efforts to combat other large scale problems. Little is known about the psychological antecedents that affect the perception of and behavioral responses to global inequality. Based on, and extending, Duckitt’s (2001) dual-process model, the current research examines psychological antecedents that may explain how people in an industrialized Western country respond to global inequality. In two studies (N1 = 116, N2 = 117), we analyzed the relationship between the Big Five and justice constructs, right-wing authoritarianism (RWA), social dominance orientation (SDO), and behavioral intentions to reduce global inequality. Two-group path analysis revealed support for the dual-process model in that RWA and SDO were important predictors of behavioral intentions and partially acted as mediators between personality and such intentions. Moreover, justice sensitivity explained variance beyond the “classic” DPM variables. In Study 2, we additionally assessed individuals’ global social identification and perceived injustice of global inequality that explained additional variance. Extending previous work on the dual-process model, these findings demonstrate that individual and group-based processes predict people’s responses to global inequality and uncover potentials to promote behavior in the interest of global justice.

Previous research has shown that normative appeals to engage in environmentally friendly behavior were most effective when they were accompanied by a provincial norm (e.g., when norms matched individuals’ immediate situational circumstances). Analyzing hotel guests’ towel-use during their stay, the current study tests whether messages employing provincial norms were more effective in reducing towel-use than standard environmental messages. In line with previous findings, guests of two hotels used significantly fewer towels when provincial normative appeals—rather than standard environmental messages—were communicated. These findings corroborate to the body of research demonstrating the power of social norms on environmental behavior. [less ▲]

Europa, so der Anschein nach Jahren der Wirtschaftskrise und des Aufschwungs nationalistischer Parteien, steht vor dem aus. Statt eines gemeinsamen Miteinanders im europäischen Rahmen stehen nunmehr negative Emotionen und Ressentiments, z.B. zwischen den "faulen Griechen" und "deutschen Sparnazis", im Vordergrund. Der folgende Artikel zeichnet anhand psychologischer Theorie und Forschung nach, wie sich dieser Konflikt verstehen lässt und argumentiert, wie Europa vielleicht doch noch zu retten wäre. [less ▲]

Haben Sie sich auch schon gefragt, warum Sie es unangenehm finden, wenn jemand aus Ihrer eigenen Gruppe Mist verzapft, Sie aber völlig gelassen sind, wenn jemand aus einer anderen Gruppe dasselbe tut? Dann ist es ziemlich wahrscheinlich, dass dieser Jemand aus Ihrer Gruppe irgendwie an ihrer sozialen Identität gerüttelt hat, die ihnen - gegeben der Regeln, Werte und Normen, für die Sie ihre Gruppe schätzen - sehr wichtig ist. Im folgenden Artikel soll erklärt werden, warum mit eigenen Gruppenmitgliedern härter ins Gericht gegangen wird als mit Mitgliedern anderer Gruppen. [less ▲]
