In this study, we pit the motivation to affiliate with one's ingroup against the motivation to view oneself positively. People often desire to affiliate with their group, and even assimilate attributes of their group into their self-concepts. Evidence has been mixed regarding whether people will assimilate both positive and negative group attributes into self-concept. In the current study, participants choose between traits which is more self-relevant while learning which types of traits are most group-relevant. We explore whether group-relevance of traits may influence what traits people choose as self-relevant, and if people will self-derogate in favor of assimilating with their ingroup.
