When social identityis defined as partof an individualself-system. However. But the different conceptualizationsof what social identity is give rise to very different views of what it means to have multiple social identities. the individual(eitherconsciously or subconsciously)weighs andassesses available aspectsof the self to determinewhich areactivatedorengagedas guidesto behavior in the currentsituation.2000. p. sometimes being defined more inclusively and sometimes more exclusively as a function of intergroupcomparisons.

All social identity theories share the recognition that individualscan-and usually do-derive their identitiesfrom more than one social group. the self is also viewed as an organized system that structures relationshipsamong the differentidentitiesand determineswhich identityis invoked at a particular time as a function of the relative salience and centralityof identities within and across social situations(Stryker& Serpe.but ultimatelythey areall partof a single representation of the individualself.it was clearthatI was choosing one amongmany social identitiesI could have drawn upon from my own experience.

Some level of identificationwith the groupas a whole may be partof the process of introjectionand interalization of groupnorms. then.the value of differentperspectives should be recognized and acknowledged. multiple criss-crossing social identities can become a source of increasing fractionationor enhanced stability. Ultimately. The alternativesolution of conjunctive identity has the effect of removing the individual from conflicting demands by contracting the boundaries of group identificationandenlargingthe outgroup. Toward an Interdisciplinary Integration Throughoutthis essay. I have triedto make it evident that social identity-in all of its manifestations-is a key concept for political psychology.which presupposesthatgroupmembershave the groupmembership as partof their individualsocial identities.managingcombinedidentities becomes more problematicand effortful.Rather than attemptingto extract some common definitionof a concept like social identity. As an interdisciplinaryenterprise.Ultimately. pluralisticsociety. all of the meaningsof social identitywill be necessaryto develop a comprehensivetheoryof the psychobetweenindividualsandthe social groupsto which they belong logical relationship or are assigned.In a large.political psychology should provide a playing field in which concepts from different disciplines and theoretical traditions can be brought together in an integrative framework.dependingon how competing identitiesare managed. and sharedexperiencesat the individuallevel. Whetherone is trying to explain individualsocial behavioror the uniformity of collective behavior. some understandingof the reciprocal relations between groupboundariesandcollective identitieson the one handand individualself-concept on the other will be essential. the individualis likely to exert efforts towardcompromiseand reconciliation-efforts that have the effect of reducing conflict and increasingtolerance. the additive strategyis relatively easy.with the effect of reducingtoleranceand potential cooperation.
