This contribution considers outgroup projection, that is, the tendency to extend the negative contents of prejudice towards a minority subgroup (Roms) to the superinclusive group (Romanians), according to an outgroup projection process. Preliminary Study 1 examines stereotypic representations of Roms and Romanians. Preliminary Study 2 evaluates perceptions of the two groups with respect to predictors of stereotype content. Then, the Main Study examines the more general projection process of the Roms subgroup on Romanians. Evidence supports existence of such outgroup projection process.
