How Can I Help When I Feel Rejected? the Interplay of Social Exclusion, Social Identity, and Prosocial Behavior

This research explores prosocial behavior through social exclusion and social identity lens. Results suggested that when feeling rejected, prototypical members displayed lower willingness-to-help whereas peripheral members have higher willingness-to-help. When feeling ignored, such effect was attenuated for both peripherals and prototypicals. Prosocial behavior alleviates some negative consequences of social exclusion.
