Background Despite the potential detrimental consequences for individuals’ health and discrimination from covid-19 symptoms, the outcomes have received little attention. This study examines the relationships between having personally experienced discrimination based on the symptoms of covid-19 (during the first wave of the pandemic), mental health,...

Decades of research have shown that social dominance orientation (SDO) is one of the most important predictors of anti-immigrant attitudes. However, the mechanisms through which SDO can explain prejudice have been studied insufficiently. Using rich and diverse samples from France and from the province of Québec in Canada, the present research prov...

Several scientists have shown the importance of mitigating global warming and have highlighted a need for major social change, particularly when it comes to meat consumption and collective engagement. In the present study ( N = 486), we conducted a cross-sectional study to test the mismatch model, which aims at explaining what motivates individuals...

Full-text available
In two studies about farming practices, the respondents who are particularly favorable to organic farming tend to have a higher intention to convert their farm to organic when they perceive other farmers as not very favorable to this practice. This intention can be considered as anticonformist, as it is in opposition to the general view of others....

The selective exposure effect describes people's tendency to prefer information that confirms rather than challenges their existing beliefs. The present research replicates the selective exposure effect in the context of meat reduction as strategy to combat climate change. Additionally, we tested whether biased information selection can help explai...
Article
The present research focuses on populism as a bottom-up phenomenon that emerges from shared perceptions of relative deprivation. We predict that by serving as a shared ideological basis, populist attitudes can mobilize leaderless anti-government protest across ideological boundaries. We test this prediction in the context of the French Yellow Vests...

This study examines the evolution of Schwartz’s Basic Human Values during the Covid-19 outbreak, and their relationships with perceived threat, compliance with movement restrictions and social distancing. An online questionnaire was administered to a heterogeneous sample of French citizens (N = 1025) during the first French lockdown related to the...

Background: This paper is a follow-up study continuing the COVISTRESS network previous research regarding health-related determinants. Objective: The aim was to identify the main consequences of COVID-19 lockdown on Body Mass Index and Perceived Fragility, related to Physical Activity (PA), for different categories of populations, worldwide. Desi...
Article
Recent advances in social psychological research have shown that national integration policies influence how immigrants are perceived and treated by the mainstream population. However, the processes by which these policies come to have an impact on prejudice and well‐being of the general population are largely unknown. Moreover, past research has o...
Article
We tested the hypothesis that discriminatory behaviors against religious or ethnic minorities are largely governed by culturally specific intergroup norms that are tied to a given social context. In Study 1 (N = 733), we compared participants from five countries and identified "new secu-larism" as the culture-specific norm predominant in the target...
Article
Full-text available
We propose an agent-based model leading to a decrease or an increase of hostility between agents after a major cultural threat such as a terrorist attack. The model is inspired from the Terror Management Theory and the Social Judgement Theory. An agent has a cultural identity defined through its acceptance segments about each of three different cul...

Preprint
We aim to study through an agent-based model the cultural conditions leading to a decrease or an increase of discrimination between groups after a major cultural threat such as a terrorist attack. We propose an agent-based model of cultural dynamics inspired from the social psychological theories. An agent has a cultural identity comprised of the m...

Terrorism cannot be easily studied experimentally for obvious reasons. We report the results of a laboratory study (N = 149) testing the effect of cultural worldviews on feelings of threat and hostility toward Muslims in France that include in the design the deadly terrorist attack of January 7 th 2015 in Paris as a naturally occurring independent...

Des travaux récents ont montré que la conception actuelle de la laïcité pouvait être reliée aux préjugés envers les minorités ethniques et religieuses (Kamiejski et al., 2012). Notre étude propose d’examiner ce lien de façon expérimentale afin de vérifier dans quelle mesure le climat social actuel peut légitimer l’exercice de pression normative à l...
Article
We examined whether cognitive resources are necessary to react effectively to norm transgressions of others. In Study 1, we showed that a polite verbal expression of disapproval was the most effective form of social control because perpetrators were least likely to engage in the same norm transgression again in the future. In Study 2, we manipulate...
Article
Full-text available
Au regard de la théorie de la menace du stéréotype (Steele & Aronson, 1995), cet article examine le rôle médiateur des émotions de peur et de colère dans la chute de performance des groupes stigmatisés. En se basant sur les théories fonctionnelles et cognitives des émotions (Mackie & Worth, 1989 ; Oatley & Johnson-Laird, 1987), les auteurs postulen...

L’étude présentée vise à valider une version française du « Test of self-conscious affect-3 » (TOSCA-3) développé par Tangney et al. (2000), et à combler ainsi l’absence d’instrument valide en langue française permettant de mesurer les prédispositions des individus à ressentir des émotions autoconscientes telles que la honte ou la culpabilité. Un é...
Article
Full-text available
In the framework of the stereotype threat theory (Steele & Aronson, 1995), this article examines the emotions, more specifically fear and anger, as a mediator in the lower performance observed among stigmatized groups. Based on cognitive and functional theories (Mackie & Worth, 1989; Oatley & Johnson-Laird, 1987), the authors assume that fear and a...
Article
Full-text available
The present research investigated the role that threat to social image and self-conscious emotions play in reaction to deviance. In three studies, participants were invited to imagine themselves in a situation in which they were bystanders of a deviant behavior. We manipulated the threat to the in-group's social image through the deviant group memb...

Least squares analyses (e.g., ANOVAs, linear regressions) of hierarchical data leads to Type-I error rates that depart severely from the nominal Type-I error rate assumed. Thus, when least squares methods are used to analyze hierarchical data coming from designs in which some groups are assigned to the treatment condition, and others to the control...
Article
Full-text available
The present research examined bystanders' reactions to uncivil behaviors. We tested a proposed mediator of the effect by which bystanders are more likely to exert social control over in-group compared to out-group members. Participants were asked to report their likely reaction if they were to witness a woman throwing a plastic bottle into a flower...
Article
Full-text available
Stigmatized group membership leads to deleterious consequences for individuals. More specifically, according to stereotype threat literature, the awareness of negative intellectual stereotypes can impair stereotyped group members' performance. Based on this framework, two studies were designed to explain the lower grades obtained by French- Arab st...

EnglishThe present research examines the emotions that we feel when others express their disapproval about an incivil behavior that we engaged in. The participants of our study saw a movie in which a protagonist committed an incivility and a bystander expressed her disapproval. The bystander was either an in-group or an out-group member. The partic...

Informal social control is the communication of disapproval by one individual to another individual (the perpetrator) who has transgressed a social norm. The present research examined the conditions under which social control provokes moral versus angry emotions in the perpetrator. The roles of perceived deviance and the appraisal of the legitimacy...

Full-text available
This paper reports a prototype analysis of the French emotion lexicon, which largely replicates a previous study by Zammuner (1998) of the Italian emotion lexicon. Three measures of prototypicality were assessed, from which an explicit and an implicit indicator were computed. Prototypicality was predicted by aspects of the subjective state denoted...

AFFIRMATIF : Affirmation procedures, social integration norms and attitudes towards immigrants among adolescents In this research program, we use a multidisciplinary approach (social psychology and sociology of education) to examine both socio-cultural factors and the psychological mechanisms of prejudice in adolescents. We have the following objectives: (a) to study how immigrant integration norms are associated with prejudice among adolescents through a survey on a representative sample (b) to examine how social norms of integration can influence the effectiveness of self-affirmation in reducing prejudice through experimental laboratory studies and (c) to test a social intervention based on these studies in high schools.
