In the real world, individuals inhabit many different social groups simultaneously and stereotypes about one social group may conflict with another. Two such conflicting stereotype sets are those associated with female and with leaders, female are considered less competence, but leaders are perceived more competence. The current research begins to examine whether participants perceived female person more competent after evaluate multiply-categorizable individuals. In two studies using pre-post test design, participant evaluate the warmth and competence about multiply-categorizable targets (e.g., female leaders, female subordinate). After the evaluative task, they perceived female more competence both explicitly (study1) and implicitly (study2).
