AbstractThe present study examined the effects of implicit theories (or mindsets) on stereotyping in the perception of local students towards ethnic minorities. 398 local secondary school students participated in the study in which they were randomly assigned into 4 experimental groups in a 2x2 design. After they were manipulated to believe groups had a malleable nature or a fixed nature by reading an article, their decisions made on an offence as outgroup bias were measured. Inconsistent with the hypotheses, results revealed that students primed with growth mindset did not have less outgroup bias than those primed with fixed mindset. Moreover, they did not make significantly different decisions on targets with different identities. Possible reasons were discussed afterwards. Although there were some limitations, this study had its contribution and could pave way for the future direction of research.
