Dissociation Model Of Prejudice
As proposed by Devine, there are two types of stored information relevant to prejudice: and personal beliefs. Typically individuals with high levels of prejudice are aware of it and endorse it while those with low levels of prejudice are aware of it but don't endorse it.
This model suggests that stereotypes are a 'default' response for both high and low prejudice groups. Research has shown that when confronted with stereotypes automatic processing occurs and both the high and low prejudiced groups have the same initial reaction. But, after time, the low prejudice individuals suppress the stereotype using controlled processes and don't endorse it.
