Abstract:This study was conducted to gain insight in the effect of awareness of ‘good deeds’, ‘bad deeds’ or ‘neutral deeds’ on the extend to which the participant is able to take perspective of an in-group or an out-group offender. The expectation was that participants who were aware of their ‘bad deeds’ would be more willing to take perspective from an offender of a foreign group(out-group) than from an offender of their own group (in-group). It was also expected that participants who were aware of their ‘good deeds’ would be more willing to take perspective from an offender of the in-group than from an offender of an out-group. An interaction effect between the awareness of a participant own ‘good deeds’, ‘bad deeds’ or ‘neutral deeds’ and the group membership of the offender on the participant’s willingness to take an offenders’ perspective. Furthermore an explanation was examined, namely the influence of the self-esteem of a participant. Self-esteem would be expected to be lowered when a participant is aware of their ‘bad deeds’ compared with a participant who is aware of their ‘good deeds’. This feeling of low self-esteem would give a participant a higher motivation to respond less prejudiced. 118 participants collaborated in this experiment. The expectations were investigated but there was no evidence found to confirm the hypotheses. Implications for further research were provided within the discussion and conclusion part.
