Sample text

In contrast with the preceding two processes, in which stereo­ typic information is actually presented in different degrees of association with various social groups, in the process of illusory correlation people come to perceive a correlation of particular traits with a given social group, even in cases where they have not been differentially associated. Experiments on social cognition have shown that this illogical process often occurs in situations where subjects are presented with instances in which two groups of different size (a numerical majority group and minority group) are paired with two or more kinds of traits or behaviors having different frequencies (a common one such as honesty and a rare one, such as being a criminal).

Similarly, people who are busy with multiple tasks tend to remember information about individuals better when it confirms their stereotype of the group (Macrae, Hewstone, & Griffiths, 1993), and the same is true of prejudiced people who have strong stereotypes (von Hippel, Sekaquaptewa, & Vargas, 1995). Although schemas can change over time, there are several different cognitive and motivational processes that contribute to their continuation (Hilton & von Hippel, 1996). Thus, one of their main features is their perseverance—sometimes even when the evidence that produced them is completely discredited (Anderson, Lepper, & Ross, 1980).

A later approach is to consider these three aspects as separate and distinct entities, calling them beliefs, attitudes, and behavioral intentions. A third viewpoint, called a latent process approach, is favored in this text. It considers attitudes as unobservable intervening variables, which must be inferred from observable responses. It holds that attitudes can arise from stimulus events through cognitive, affec­ tive, and/or behavioral processes, and that they can be demonstrated by any or all of these three types of responses.
