Recent empirical research has shown that people tend to view outgroups as being less human than they"re in group. Haslam identifies two types of dehumanization: animalistic: which is denial of uniquely human attributes and mechanistic dehumanization: which is the denial of human nature. Animalistic dehumanization at the intergroup resembles infrahumzation, which is the attribution of more uniquely human emotions to the ingroup vs the outgroup. A measure of intergroup animalistic dehumanization in which participants assign human related words (person, humanity, man) and animal related words (pet, creature, feral) to ingroup and outgroups. Results found that human related words were considered as being more typical for the in-group than the outgroup. Consequences of dehumanization people attributed secondary emotions to outgroup victims of hurricane katrina, the less willing they were to help them. In northern ireland researchers found that dehumanization led to decreases in the willingness to forgive out members.
