Abstract

Umversity Membership in a group requires a certam amount of behavioral conformity to the rules, either exjJicit or imphdt, which have been estabhshed by all members of that group The concept of "group" itself signifies that there is some distinctive pattern of behaviors which characterizes members of a particular group and differentiates them from others The fact that peojde are always members of more than one group indicates that their pattems of behavior should vary as they take on particular roles in one group and temporarily shed the roles of another While this generalization is verified m the every day experiences of most human beings, few experimental demonstrations are available of behavioral variations attributable to changes in one's roles or his feelings of identification with certam groups Newcomb (1950, p 275 ff ) has discussed the significance of this phenomenon and Charters and Newcomb (1958) have demonstrated how social attitudes vary when mdividuals' awareness of bemg members of religfious groups is experimentally modified In their research plan, some 5's were made aware that they were expressing attitudes as Catholics (or Jews, or Protestants, depending on their actual religious aflShation) while other 5's gave their attitudes as they assumed
