|Summary of thesis||
Based on a) the Social Identity Theory by Tajfel and Turner and b) the Role Identity theories by Stryker, Burke and Stets, we will approach the issue of self-identification and try to pinpoint the heuristic mechanisms that lead to the activation of specific identities in specific contexts. We will particularly explore the probability that the identification processes are structured through (or can be modeled by) Fast and Frugal Trees.
