Abstract: God has a prominent presence in human societies and research suggests that priming God concepts could influence our psychological processes. However, two issues remain unclear in the God priming research. One, could activation of God concepts influence the self at the upstream construal and the downstream behavioral levels? Two, does religiosity moderate the impact of God concept priming on different prosocial responses? To address these issues, three series of studies were conducted in this dissertation. Results showed that activation of God concepts decreased implicit self-accessibility (Series 1) and led to more explicit self-avoidance behaviors (Series 2). Results also showed that the effect of God priming on prosociality was moderated by individual?s belief in God (Series 3). Theoretical implications on how the self and prosocial behaviors are influenced when God concepts are activated are also discussed in the dissertation.
