Abstract: At least two theoretical accounts suggest that low self-esteem (i.e., a belief that one is of low value) should predict out-group derogation. Social identity theory proposes that derogating out-groups is one of the ways of achieving positive in-group distinctiveness. Thus, in order to increase their self-esteem, group members may be motivated to derogate out-groups(Tajfel & Turner, 1979; cf Turner & Reynolds, 2001). In addition, Theodore Adorno (1997) and Erich Fromm (1964; 1973) and status politics theorists (e.g., Gusfield, 1973) argued that low self-esteem motivates collective narcissism (or exaggeration of the in-group's importance), which is associated with out-group derogation. However, empirical evidence suggests that, on average, the relationship between self-esteem and out-group derogation (Abrams & Hogg, 1988; Martiny & Rubin, 2016; Rubin & Hewstone, 1998) as well as the relationship between self-esteem and collective narcissism are close to zero (Golec de Zavala et al., 2019). Results of six studies (cross-sectional, longitudinal and experimental) are discussed that indicate that low self-esteem uniquely predicts out-group derogation via collective narcissism only when the overlap between collective narcissism and in-group satisfaction is statistically controlled. High self-esteem is associated with out-group tolerance uniquely via in-group satisfaction.

Abstract: R is a free programming language for statistical analysis. Although many psychologists are aware of the unlimited opportunities of R, many are terrified by the idea of programming. The seminar will introduce the basic principles of R and explain the logic of R programming. During practical sessions, students will be able to use R to manipulate data and perform basic statistical analyses. By the end of the seminar, the students’ ability to learn R will be boosted and the fear will be gone.
