Abstract (type = abstract)
Psychosocial resources, such as social support and self-worth, are important for attenuating threatening experiences to maintain a more accurate perception of the world, but the experience of ostracism can threaten these resources. Because psychosocial resources enable less biased perception, the experience of ostracism should disrupt perception, especially among those with few dispositional psychosocial assets. On the other hand, people with adequate psychosocial resources should be more capable of maintaining accurate perception even after resources have been threatened by ostracism. Four studies were conducted to determine if the experience of ostracism disrupts perception of human movement and if psychosocial resources can enable more accurate monitoring after experiencing social threat. These studies tested the assertions of the Resources and Perception Model that heightened arousal elicited by the perception of challenging or threatening features distorts perception, but psychosocial resources attenuate arousal and enable more accurate judgments. Study 1 demonstrated that ostracism disrupts perception of human movement, but perception is maintained among those with greater social support and self-worth. Study 2 demonstrated that boosting self-worth before ostracism could enhance accuracy for detecting human movement, but only when dispositional resources were adequate. Study 3 measured physiological stress and arousal during ostracism and during the detection of human movement. Results indicated that ostracism was more stressful to those high in hostility, a trait that was negatively related to resources, and that detecting human movement elicited greater arousal among those with fewer resources and those who had been ostracized. Study 4 demonstrated that abilities to identify threatening human movement are supported by psychosocial resources. Taken together, these studies demonstrate that psychosocial resources moderate threatening social experiences and enable greater abilities to see and interpret human actions.
