Outgroup perception and prejudice as well as researched social cognition processes, still provide new perspectives of analysis. Social Dominance Orientation (SDO) and Right Wing Authoritarianism (RWA) constructs are proved to moderate prejudice formation. Our research aimed to look at these processes in specifically Georgian context. We duplicated experimental procedure offered by Duckitt and Sibley (2009), to look at the relationship between prejudice formation and RWA / SDO in different experimental conditions. Our data enabled to analyze this relationship in terms of overall social processes, where challenges facing particular groups of people (like generation in our case) can make certain qualities of outgroup more prominent in prejudice formation.
