27 Uncertainty Reduction (cont’d) z Supportive Evidence (Grieve & Hogg 1999, Expt. 1, Hogg & Grieve 1999) Assumption : The standard minimal group paradigm causes relatively high subjective uncertainty due to its subjective novelty. Rationale : Practice trials should reduce this uncertainty and, consequently, reduce the motive to identify with the in-group. Results : Participants showed less group identification and in-group bias after completing practice trials compared to participants who took part in standard minimal group experiments with no practice trials.
