In the context of the Stereotype Content Model, we investigated the “backward” inferential process that leads from competence stereotype to structural attribute of status. Three hypotheses were tested: (1) perceived competence affects attributions of status; (2) the less competent group is perceived as warmer (compensation effect); (3) membership leads to ingroup status enhancement. Two minimal groups were created; groups’ competence and membership were manipulated. Findings supported the hypotheses: group status was rated higher when the target group was described as competent; groups were rated warmer when lower in competence; group status was rated higher by members than non-members

Abstract

In the context of the Stereotype Content Model, we investigated the “backward” inferential process that leads from competence stereotype to structural attribute of status. Three hypotheses were tested: (1) perceived competence affects attributions of status; (2) the less competent group is perceived as warmer (compensation effect); (3) membership leads to ingroup status enhancement. Two minimal groups were created; groups’ competence and membership were manipulated. Findings supported the hypotheses: group status was rated higher when the target group was described as competent; groups were rated warmer when lower in competence; group status was rated higher by members than non-members
