Social identity theory has three parts:
Social categorisation: which is seeing yourself as part of a group.
Social identification: which is identifying with the group and taking on the attitudes of the group e.g. clothes, haircut etc.
Social comparison: making the in group seem better than the out group by in group favouritism and out group denigration in order to boost in groups self esteem.
