J1. the Effect of Identity Abstractness on Information Processing Styles

This study suggests that how a social identity is construed (i.e., identity abstractness) would influence one’s information processing style. Specifically, we predict that, when a social identity with high (vs. low) identity abstractness is activated, a person is likely to process information more abstractly (vs. concretely).
