more highly than other groups

more highly than other groups (Tajfel & Turner, 1985). Several psychological studies have supported the fact that individuals create social categories in order to boost self-esteem. An example of this being when individuals learn that their social group is unacceptable to society, they tend to perceive the out-group as unacceptable as well. With this being said all social groups work the same inside and out. It’s not uncommon for a lot of people to feel the same way about certain social situations.The concept of social identity as described by Social Identity Theory could be altered by way of having a greater greater acknowledgement of the diversity of social groups that can represent one’s social identity.
