Individual Differences
Individual differences

People have generalized prejudice levels: those who are more prejudiced toward one outgroup tend to be more prejudiced toward others. We review how individual differences in prejudice have been assessed (explicitly and implicitly) and the predictors of generalized prejudice. Social dominance orientation (SDO) and right-wing authoritarianism (RWA) are the best predictors of explicit prejudice. Why? One account suggests that they are dispositional sources, and a second proposes that they are ideological sources, of explicit prejudice. A third account suggests that they are both aspects of conservatism, which predicts prejudice. Finally, a fourth account suggests that they are aspects of higher order constructs that are the sources of both explicit and implicit prejudice. We close with suggested research directions and conclusions.
