Create a 6 pages page paper that discusses inter-individual and intergroup interactions. The first interaction shows high inter-individual and low intergroup characteristics because my cousin and I have the same group, which is our family, as well as the same cultural group (Chinese). My cousin is the same age as I am too, so we have the same age group. We talked about our favorite TV shows a week ago in a face-to-face encounter during lunch. We were at a fast-food restaurant. Though it was a bit noisy, we were able to talk without having to shout at each other. I could say that our interaction was highly inter-individual because we did not talk about group differences since we enjoyed the same show, Game of Thrones.

We used the same language used in the TV show (e.g. “demand trial by combat”), which manifests “community solidarity” (Giles, 2012, p. 8). Using belief dissimilarity theory, we are members of the same ingroup because we have the same beliefs regarding the entertainment and plot complexity value of the show. However, we have dissimilarities that account for inter-individual differences. For instance, when we talked about our least favorite characters in the show, I emphasized that Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is evil and should be eliminated, while my cousin empathized with her.

She said that Cersei is who she is because her father kept undermining her because she is a woman. I was shocked that she defended Cersei because I find her egoistic and manipulative. We had a debate on whether Cersei’s gender is enough rationalization for her selfishness. All in all, this interaction remains inter-individual because we see each other as being in the same ingroup of Game of Thrones fans, but we have differences in our assessment of the personality of its characters. I also think that we did not see each other as part of an outgroup, and instead, we enjoyed these inter-individual differences as a way of appreciating our favorite TV show.

The second interaction demonstrates low inter-individual and high intergroup characteristics because of its emphasis on social identity salience. I was watching the violent riots in Baltimore on TV with my friend, Mark, in a restaurant.
