Not All Identities Are Created Equal: the Effect of Identity Origin on Identity-Relevant Behavior

We demonstrate that consumers have fewer negative associations for chosen than endowed social identities, dislike dissociative out-groups more strongly for chosen than endowed identities, and that identity origin affects conformity and divergence decisions.
