Honor and Morality
Chair/Speakers: Patricia Rodriguez Mosquera, Colin Leach, Giovanni A. Travaglino, Ryan Brown, Patricia Rodriguez Mosquera
Abstract: If there is honor in claiming moral integrity, then trustworthiness should be central to in-group’s self-stereotypes and positive evaluation. Four studies of implicit, and two studies of explicit, gender stereotypes supported this view. Compared to warmth, trustworthiness was more strongly linked to in-group favoritism and satisfaction with group membership.

Bullshitting: Empirical and Experiential Examinations of a Pervasive Social Behavior
Chair/Speakers: John Petrocelli, John Petrocelli, Lisa Fazio, Gordon Pennycook, Jevin West
Abstract: Little is known about the antecedents and consequences of bullshitting. Social conditions under which bullshitting is likely to occur are identified. Social perceptions of bullshitting, relative to lying and communicating with a concern for evidence, are explored. Bullshitting can also enhance persuasion when arguments are weak, yet undermine persuasive attempts when arguments are strong.

New Frontiers in Social Norms: Understanding Perception, Mechanism and Application
Chair/Speakers: Gregg Sparkman, Sohad Murrar, Jennifer Dannals, Sohad Murrar, Lauren Howe, Gregg Sparkman
Abstract: We examine how individuals weigh the behavior of higher versus lower ranking group members in inferring the average group behavior. Individuals trying to learn the social norm prefer to learn the behavior of lower ranking individuals and give more weight to the behavior of lower ranking individuals. Perceptions are influenced more by the behavior of lower than higher ranking group members.
