The Silver Lining of Feeling Stereotyped: Increasing Saving Behavior Among Future-Oriented Young Adults

This research investigates the interactive effect of stereotype and future orientation on saving behavior of young adults. We found that when young adults high in future orientation (vs. those low in future orientation) thought about negative (vs. positive) stereotypes regarding their meaningful social groups, they chose to contribute larger proportions of their incomes to their individual retirement accounts (study 1). Moreover, future orientation increased saving (vs. spending) intentions of negatively stereotyped individuals only when the individuals strongly (vs. weakly) identified with the stereotyped groups (study 2).
