Description:

This paper demonstrates how the two articles, "Harvesting Implicit Group Attitudes and Beliefs From a Demonstration Web Site" by B. Nosek and A Greenwald and "Group Norms and Attitude-Behavior Consistency, The Role of Group Salience and Mood" by J. Wellen, M. Hogg and D. Terry, in their own ways portray how societal norms can affect implicit and explicit beliefs and feelings within certain groups and how the mere act of being involved and being accepted by a group directly influences one's behaviors and attitudes because people can categorize themselves to a specific group.

From the Paper:

"In small or large social environments, social interaction between group members often facilitates actions that control individual behavior. These reactions to the group are guided by societal norms that significantly influence the participation level of the team. As a result norms can emerge from group ideals that are based on shared attitudes and beliefs. Furthermore, the mere act of being involved and being accepted by a group directly influences one's behaviors and attitudes because people can categorize themselves to a specific group. In fact the two articles, "Harvesting Implicit Group Attitudes and Beliefs From a Demonstration Web Site" and "Group Norms and Attitude-Behavior Consistency, The Role of Group Salience and Mood" in their own ways portray how societal norms can affect implicit and explicit beliefs and feelings within certain groups."
