Abstract

Personality characteristics can influence the likelihood of a person becoming a target of ostracism. Particularly, low agreeableness and low conscientiousness have been shown to increase the risk of being ostracized. Here, we investigate whether the situational context in which individuals interact moderates the effect that personality has on ostracism intentions. Within four studies, we show that low target agreeableness increases ostracism intentions more strongly in a social than in a performance context. In contrast, low target conscientiousness increases ostracism decisions more strongly in a performance compared to a social context. The results suggest that individuals make decisions about how to ostracize others strategically and in line with the goals of the respective group within a specific situational context.
