Abstract
The present study examines the hypothesis that psychological presence of members from the in-group primes loyalty which leads to more positive expressed judgments of the in-group.

The present study examines the hypothesis that psychological presence of members from the in-group primes loyalty which leads to more positive expressed judgments of the in-group. And the psychological presence of members from the out-group primes equality which leads to less positive expressed judgments of the in-group. The participants were 90 women aged 18-30. They were instructed to make judgments of the in-group young women after having been informed that they will discuss their judgments with either other women or men. The study included a control group. Results showed that the manipulation did not result in more positive/less positive judgments of young women. However the group with the in-group manipulation did identify more words connected to loyalty than the control group did in the task which measured norm activation (Word-fragment completion task). This could be interpreted as if this group was influenced by loyalty towards the in-group. The results are discussed in relation to in-group favoritism, norm activation and social identity. (Less)
