Being excluded threatens individual’s well-being because it curbs the natural inclination to sociality. A flourishing literature has investigated factors influencing social exclusion, and its consequences. In one study, we employed the Cyberball, a computerized game in which participants receive and pass the ball to other players. We manipulated exclusion (vs. inclusion) and membership of the ostracizers (ingroup member vs. non-categorized individual). According to the experimental condition, participants could be excluded (they receive the 3.7% of total passes) or included (33% of total passes); moreover, half of participants received the ball from ingroup members and the other half from non-categorized players. After the manipulation, measures of humanity attributions (to the self, to other players, and meta-attributions) were administered. Results showed that being ostracized reduced the humanity ascribed to the three targets, while membership of ostracizers did not affect humanity perceptions.
