Cabbage, Cars and Beer? An examination of Dual Attitudes towards the Concept “German”
AbstractA controversial and still ongoing debate concerns the question whether observed weak correlations between implicit and explicit attitudes point to two different underlying constructs of attitudes or emerge due to assessing the same construct in different ways. Next to addressing the problem of the low explanatory power of correlational conclusions, the present study aimed to contribute behavioral evidence to this debate with an additional focus to the underrepresented single target categories in implicit social cognition, such as nationality concepts. The results of the assessment of attitudes towards the concept “German” point to the conclusion that in general, attitudes towards the concept are mostly negative. Implications from these results are used to develop strategies regarding the facilitation of academic student mobility.
