The Science Behind It

Each of us belongs to different groups that are important to our sense of who we are (e.g., race, religion, gender, education level, sports teams, and so on). Mapping the different aspects of your social identity and how they may complement or contradict one another can help you understand how simple vs. complex your social identity is. Research has found that people with higher levels of "social identity complexity" (i.e., belong to groups that seem to contradict or hold each other in check - like being a more progressive Republican or conservative Democrat) tend to show more openness and tolerance for out-groups.
