Varieties of Irreligion: Stereotypes, intergroup biases and characteristics of members of nonreligious groups
- Kemmelmeier, Markus (University of Nevada Reno)
AbstractIn the present research we focus on different categories of nonreligious individuals, including Atheists, Agnostics and a group we term “Unaffiliated Believers,” (UBs) and compare members of these categories with Christians, as well as each other. We examine (1) how Christian, Atheist, Agnostic, and UB participants rate potential Atheist, Agnostic, and Christian roommates on trustworthiness, competence, warmth, and likeability; (2) how Christian, Atheist, Agnostic, and UB participants rank potential Atheist, Agnostic, and Christian roommates (1st, 2nd, 3rd choice); (3) the streotype content Atheist, Agnostic, Christian, and UB participants attribute to Atheists, Agnostics, and Christians; (4) the (non)religious diversity of Atheist, Agnostic, Christian, and UB participant family and friendship networks; and (5) Atheist, Agnostic, Christian, and UB participant scores on measures assessing personal need for structure (PNS), right-wing authoritarianism (RWA), and social dominance orientation (SDO).
