Abstract: Ethnic Prejudice (EP) refers to the unjustified usage of negative stereotypes to exclude others based on their ethnicity. Past studies examined correlations between Openness and Agreeableness, political conservatism, emotions, and economic game behaviour (Fairness and Prosociality) with EP separately. This study seeks to provide a holistic way of assessing EP by considering all the aforementioned groups of factors. Results suggest that Openness but not Agreeableness negatively predicted EP. Political Conservatism positively predicted EP, and there were mixed findings for Emotions, Fairness and Prosociality negatively predicted EP. Effects of the predictors were still present even after taking into consideration gender effects and social desirability concerns. A secondary aim of the study was to investigate if explicit and implicit EP affected differences in donations to Chinese and Indians. Our findings are relevant across multiple disciplines including, psychology, political science and economics.
