social identity theory describe and evaluate



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.
