Emotional contagion
“There are several factors that determine the rate and extent of emotional convergence in a group. Some of these are: membership stability, mood-regulation norms, task interdependence and social interdependence.[5] Besides these event-structure properties, there are personal properties of the group’s members, such as openness to receive and transmit feelings, demographic characteristics and dispositional affect that influence the intensity of emotional contagion.”

Rosenberg self-esteem scale
“The Rosenberg self-esteem scale (RSES), developed by sociologist Dr. Morris Rosenberg,[1] is a self-esteem measure widely used in social-science research.

The RSES is designed similar to social-survey questionnaires. It is a ten-item Likert-type scale with items answered on a four-point scale — from strongly agree to strongly disagree. Five of the items have positively worded statements and five have negatively worded ones. The scale measures state self-esteem by asking the respondents to reflect on their current feelings. The original sample for which the scale was developed consisted of 5,024 high-school juniors and seniors from 10 randomly selected schools in New York State. The Rosenberg self-esteem scale is considered a reliable and valid quantitative tool for self-esteem assessment.[2]

The RSES has been translated and adapted to various languages, such as Persian,[3] French,[4] Chinese,[5] Italian,[6] German,[7] Portuguese,[8] and Spanish.[9] The scale is extensively used in cross-cultural studies in up to 53 different nations.”

Social Identity

Social identity
“Social identity is a person’s sense of who they are based on their group membership(s). Tajfel (1979) proposed that the groups (e.g. social class, family, football team etc.) which people belonged to were an important source of pride and self-esteem.”
“A social identity is the portion of an individual’s self-concept derived from perceived membership in a relevant social group.[1] As originally formulated by Henri Tajfel and John Turner in the 1970s and the 1980s,[2] social identity theory introduced the concept of a social identity as a way in which to explain intergroup behaviour.”
