Abstract

This paper reports the development of the Multiple Threat and Prejudice Questionnaire (MTPQ), a complex, multidimensional measure that assesses both identity threat on different dimensions of identification and the psychological distancing of outgroups relevant to each dimension. While mainstream approaches to prejudice focus on target groups and develop unidimensional measures, we present an instrument measuring the subjective perception of threat to identity, which provides the condition to distance the other and to construct prejudice reinforcing and stabilizing self-boundaries. Present study confirmed the hypothetical factor structure based on data from 1482 participants.
