Abstract:

People regularly judge others' potential for growth in deciding who to hire, promote, admit, or parole. Yet research on racial stereotyping has focused on trait judgments in the moment and has largely ignored how race influences judgments about growth over time. Historically, Blacks have been portrayed as lacking the potential to grow, and in this paper, I test the hypothesis that they are still seen this way. In Studies 1-3, Black targets were judged to have less potential to improve compared to White targets even when they were viewed similarly in the present and even for non-stereotypical traits. In Study 4, priming with Black faces increased participants' endorsement of the view that people are fixed. Finally, Study 5 addressed implications for societal policies. Together, this research reveals a new dimension of how a target's race may affect person perception.
