Social Psychological Aspects of Corruption in the Russian Federation
Social psychological aspects of corruption are looked at in the context of social stereotypes identified through questioning 55 respondents from two control groups of «government officials» and «non-government officials». The respondents gave their assessment to the degree of expressiveness of the qualities attributed to a profession of a government official. The conclusion of the social stereotypes towards the profession of a government official is drawn on the basis of correlation analysis of the officials’ and other profession groups’ profiles.
