Abstract

Although much human interaction occurs in intergroup situations, few studies have examined the effects of individual and group outcomes on attitudes toward own and other group. The present study examined the effects of individual and group competence on attraction toward own and other group. The task was a simulated football game whose outcomes for individual and for group were manipulated by the experimenter. Prior to engaging in the contest, team members displayed an own group bias. Furthermore, winning increased the preference for own group and losing decreased this preference. Winning or losing more than one game had little effect on any of the dependent measures. High competent players expressed greater enjoyment of the game and the part they played in it than low competent players, but they did not exhibit greater OGB.
