Abstract

There has been little research conducted on the impact that COVID-19 has had on people, both at an individual and group level. The aim of this study is to explore the relationship between COVID-19 stress and its impact on in-group bias. In-group bias refers to the tendency for people to favor those who share their beliefs. Participants will be assigned to one of two conditions: COVID stress or Health Stress. Participants will then complete measures of collective self-esteem (how important your group identifications are), protestant work ethic (a proxy measure for conservatism), political identification, and in-group bias followed by demographics.
