Meta-stereotype refers to a person’s beliefs regarding the stereotype that out-group members hold about his or her own group. As intergroup meta-perception, the content and valence of meta-stereotype can reflect intergroup relations to a certain extent. In recent years, more and more researches had demonstrated that meta-stereotype exerted stronger influence on intergroup relation than other-stereotype. Meta-stereotype activation is more complicated and leads to a series of effects on people’s feeling, thought and behavior. Future research should further explore the following issues: researchers should pay more attention to mental mechanism of meta-stereotype impacts on intergroup relations; explore the strategies that meta-stereotype may improve intergroup relations, different groups in the Chinese cultural context should also be taken into consideration in the research.

Keywords meta-stereotype      activation      intergroup relations
