Assignment 11


1. How is prosocial behavior directed towards ingroup members different than such behavior directed towards outgroup members?









2. We also apparently treat individual outgroup members differently than an outgroup as a whole. According to the research from the "Is an outgroup member in need..." article, how does personal contact and task-oriented contact differently relate to prosocial behavior towards individual outgroup members versus outgroups as a whole?








3. Our ol' friend empathy is back. How do the authors of the above article suggest empathy plays a role in explaining these results?
