題目:Conspiracy Theories and The Search For Structure

 

Abstract:

 

Conspiracy theories cast disparate or unrelated entities as engaging in concerted, malevolent action. In this talk, I explore antecedents and consequences of beliefs in conspiracy theories. I first present evidence that individual characteristics (i.e., regulatory focus, political identity) and aspects about the environment (i.e., COVID-19 and social media) shape peoples’ receptiveness to conspiratorial beliefs. I then examine a timely consequence of conspiracy theories; specifically, how COVID-19 conspiratorial beliefs are negatively associated with vaccination rates the U.S. Finally, I suggest a possible intervention that may help ameliorate the adverse effect of conspiratorial beliefs. In particular, interdependent self-construal may mitigate the relationship between the COVID-19 conspiratorial beliefs and reduced vaccination rates by increasing the perceived collective health risks of COVID-19 infection. Our intervention differs from previous efforts in that it does not rely on rational persuasion to dissuade people of conspiratorial notions. Instead, I focus on reducing the impact of conspiratorial beliefs by altering the way people think about their existing identities and groups.
