Methodological Algorithm of Integral Intragroup Status Definition in Members of Contact Community

2979

Abstract

The paper highlights the importance for social psychological research practice of the task of defining integral intragroup status positions of particular members of a real functioning contact community. The following three methodological tools are described: sociometry, ref- erence measurement technique, and a technique for identifying informal intragroup power structure. In its final part the paper proposes an algorithm that enables one to identify the categories to which members of a small group belong (i.e. high-status, middle-status and low- status member categories) basing on the integral indicators of intragroup structures related to attraction, reference and power.
