Group identity, task performance, and cooperation
Annual Meeting of the Midwestern Psychological Association
We examined cooperative responses to a social dilemma as a function of group salience and collective performance. As predicted, collective failure resulted in less cooperation when personal or subgroup identities were salient, but more cooperation when a superordinate identity was salient. Measured group identity and group-focused thoughts mediated the relationship.
