Number of Students: 

Collective narcissism is an inflated ingroup perception accompanied with the need to get recognition from the others. While it has been mostly studied in relation to outgroup derogation and prejudice among advantaged group members, it has been relatively less examined among disadvantaged group members. Past research has shown minority group members to also show signs of collective narcissism, even more than majority group members and especially when their social identities are threatened. The current project aims to investigate how collective narcissism may be reflected on collective action tendencies among disadvantaged group members. The students involved will be responsible for collecting data from disadvantaged minority group members (such as LGBTI group members, ethnic minorities), preparation of online surveys, and presenting them.
