Rokeach, M. ( Rokeach's theory of belief congruence (Rokeach, Smith, & Evans, ), for example, was formulated at a time when psychodynamic and personality-based approaches were giving way to a sociocultural emphasis, yet does not fit comfortably into either by: Prejudice is a negative attitude about members of a group.

Prejudice translated into behavior is called discrimination, behaving differently, usually unfairly, toward group ice often develops through stereotypes, fixed, simplistic (usually wrong) conceptions of traits, behaviors, and attitudes of a particular group of widely practiced discrimination termed sexism is.

The results were generally compatible with the notion o/social competition proposed by Turner () as a relevant factor in interethnic relations and are discussed in relation to the belief differences theory of prejudice (Rokeach, Smith, & Evans, ) and the concept of positive prejudice (Dienstbier, ; Dutton, ).

In a test of Rokeach's contention that prejudice is the result of perceived dissimilarity of belief systems, 44 white 9th-graders completed a "teen-age social distance scale" for 4 "stimulus teen. Numerous studies have explored the issue of whether belief similarity or racial membership is the more potent determinant of prejudice and discriminatory responses (Rokeach, Smith, & Evans, ).

Most of the studies have supported Rokeach's contention that belief similarity is the more important variable. It has been suggested that Authoritarianism and SDO have different motivational bases for prejudice; Duckitt () proposed a dual process theory of ideology and prejudice, where Authoritarians focused on the perceived threat to their in-group values in a dangerous world and where people with high SDO focused on the perceived threat to their.

The belief system of modern-symbolic prejudice is characterized by five themes that justify opposition to social policies designed to promote intergroup equality while still endorsing equality as an abstract principle: Racial prejudice and discrimination no longer exists, any remaining black-white differences in economic outcomes result from.

Negative evaluations that mark prejudice often and supported by negative beliefs called stereotypes. *A belief about the personal attributes of a group of people.

stereotypes are sometimes overgeneralized, inaccurate, and resistant to new information (and sometimes accurate). Albert Bandura’s social learning theory “states that behavior is learned from the environment through the process of observational learning” (Bandura, ).

It is Bandura’s belief that “humans are active information processors and think about the relationship between their behavior and its consequences” (Bandura, ). Prejudiced behavior is typically seen as emanating from prejudiced attitudes. Eight studies showed that majority-group members’ beliefs about prejudice can create seemingly “prejudiced” behaviors above and beyond prejudice measured explicitly (Study 1b) and implicitly (Study 2).

Those who believed prejudice was relatively fixed, rather than malleable, were less interested in interracial. Scapegoat theory says that prejudice is a way for people to blame others for their problems. Support for this theory comes from the fact that, when times are tough, prejudice seems higher.

The relationship between prejudice and categorical thinking was first systematically explored by Gordon Allport () in his classic bookThe Nature of Prejudice. Although Allport recognized the emotional, social, economic, and historic dimensions of prejudice, he also proposed that prejudice is partly an outgrowth of normal human functioning.

First, belief congruency theory (Rokeach, Smith, & Evans, ) has been used to explain why people are more attracted to ethnic outgroups with whom they share similar beliefs and values.
