I examined the effects that phenotype and perspective taking have on stereotyping. In two experiments, participants were randomly assigned to one of two perspective taking conditions and a phenotype condition and completed several explicit and implicit stereotyping measures (i.e., the stereotyping IAT, Amodio & Devine, 2006, or the Race-Weapons Association Task, Payne, 2001b). The results of Experiment 1 indicate perspective takers who see a high phenotypic outgroup member explicitly stereotype the target more than non-perspective takers who see the same target and more than perspective takers who see the low phenotypic target. Experiment 2’s results indicate a trend towards that same prediction; however, the target used seems to play a role.
