Abstract or Description

Two studies examined the relationship between collective narcissism - an identification with an in-group linked to an emotional investment in an unrealistic belief about its unparalleled greatness (Golec de Zavala et al., 2009) - and anti-Semitism in Poland. Results indicate that this relationship is simultaneously mediated by (a) a belief that the in-group is constantly threatened by hostile intentions of other groups (Polish siege beliefs; Bar-Tal & Antebi, 1992a, b) and (b) a belief that the Jewish out-group is particularly threatening because its members secretly aim to dominate the world (conspiracy stereotype of Jews; Bergmann, 2008; Kofta & Sędek, 2005). Results confirm that collective narcissism is linked to increased sensitivity to intergroup threat which drives its association with intergroup hostility.
