APPENDIX A: INSTRUCTIONAL SET FOR COMPLETION OF THE TAJFEL MATRICES

Here is the way to complete your response booklet. Each page in the response booklet contains one matrix. A matrix consists of 13 boxes, each containing two numbers. On each matrix you are to award points (or money or credits) to two other people in this room. The top row of numbers within the boxes are the points to be awarded to Individual A from Group Z, and the bottom row are points to be given to Individual B from Group W. After looking at each box of the matrix, you must choose only one box that represents your choice of how you wish to award the points.

Let me give you an example of how to use the matrix. Let us say you are faced with the following matrix that we have on display for you on this chart. In addition to your group label (point on chart), each of you has received a personal identification letter (point).

Points to Member A of Group Z 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23
Points to Member B of Group W 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19 21 23 25 27 29
Points given to Member A of Group Z: _____
Points given to Member B of Group W: _____
Now suppose you are distributing points for Member A of Group Z and
Member B of Group W. Think very carefully about all the numbers in the boxes.
There are a variety of choices you can make. Let us say that you decide to choose
a box toward the left-hand edge of this matrix, for example, Box 11,
5
This means that you decide to give 11 points to Member A of Group Z and 5
points to Member B of Group W. Alternatively, you might choose Box 15
13
This means you are giving 15 points to Member A of Group Z and 13 points to
Member B of Group W. On the other hand, you might decide to choose Box 17
17
which means that Member A of Group Z and Member B of Group W each get 17
points. Another option is choosing Box 20
23
This means you are willing to give 20 points to Member A of Group Z, whereas
Member B of Group W gets 23 points.
Further on in the matrix you can choose Box 23
29
in which Member A of Group Z gets 23 points, whereas Member B of Group W
gets 29 points.

Once again, you are not allowed to choose different numbers from different boxes on the same page. For instance, in our example here, you are not allowed
