This study aims to investigate relations between national identity and attitudes toward out-groups. 98 students (50 males, 48 females) of Middle East Technical University participated in the study. Their ages ranged from 18 to 33 (M = 21, SD = 2.020). Participants first filled in a nationalism questionnaire. Afterwards, they read a text about Armenians in Turkey that we constructed. Half of the participants were told that the text was written by an Armenian writer while the others were told that it was written by a Turkish writer. Participants, then, evaluated the text in terms of its reliability. Results suggested the main effects for 2 of the nationalism factors (national pride & preference, proximity likelihood), interaction effect between national attachment factor and writer of the text as well as interactions of the 3 nationalism factors. Limitations and implications of the findings were discussed.
