chapter 4 - the prejudiced personality
Adorno - some people have personality structures that are flawed in such a way
that they are conditioned to be especially likely to adopt prejudiced attitudes
authoritarians - rigid personality characterized by categorical thinking,
submissiveness to authority and adherence to middle-class values; these
individuals tend to dislike anyone who is different from themselves and thus
tend to have stereotypes and prejudice toward many groups
Allport - believed that the prejudiced personality emerged out of a “crippledego
problems with the psychodynamic approach:
researchers became more and more critical of psychoanalytic approaches to
personality
methodological and other conceptual problems with the notion of the
authoritarian personality caused many researchers to conclude that the approach
was unsatisfactory under scientific standards
theory only explained the presence of prejudice in a small subset of the
population and did not explain why many people who did not have an
authoritarian personality did show prejudice toward at least one other group
authoritarian-personality perspective suggests that there is little hope of changing
an authoritarian individual to be more accepting of others
right-wing authoritarianism (RWA) - personality style in which the individual
tends to be politically conservative, more punitive toward criminals, more likely
to endorse orthodox religious views, and very prejudiced toward outgroups
