Abstract

Group-based trust was investigated by considering the relationship between 2 groups withdiffering socioeconomic status. High-status (Northern Italians) and low-status (SouthernItalians) group members played a modified version of the investment game (Berg, Dickhaut,& McCabe, 1995), paired with an ingroup or an outgroup member. Results showed that forlow-status group members, trust was higher in the outgroup than ingroup condition, whilehigh-status group members did not prefer the ingroup over the outgroup. These findingshighlight the importance of studying the effects of status in research on group-based trust.
