Abstract:

The motivational and ideological basis for the discrimination of low-status groups has been thoroughly theorised by the Dual Process Model (Duckitt, 2001). Based on this theory, the present research investigates how competition influences the discrimination of low-status group members in comparison to high-status group members as a function of their competence and secondly, how this effect is moderated by Social Dominance Orientation (SDO). Participants (N = 398) each rated four target profiles differing in status and competence on their overall suitability, competence and future progress in either a low or highly competitive fictitious scholarship application scenario. Using crossed effects multilevel modeling, results revealed lower ratings in overall suitability for high-status group members in comparison to low-status group members depending on their competence levels. Ratings in suitability and competence, but not future progress, were negatively associated with SDO and competition. However, a moderating effect of SDO was not supported. The findings suggest a detrimental effect for members of a high-status group displaying low levels of competence in a highly competitive application situation, with the opposite effect for low-status group members displaying high levels of competence - indicating a possible affirmative action effect.
