Individuals all have multiple social identities. My research shows that different strategies of managing two seemingly conflicting social identities lead to different psychological and organizational outcomes. In four studies, I examined the processes and outcomes of “Dual Identity Integration”, an individual difference describing the degree to which two social identities are perceived as compatible or in opposition by three different types of dual identities. In Study 1, 2, and 3, I investigated how individuals with different levels of identity integration influence their ability to bridge knowledge between the two identity domains and exhibit different creative performance. In Study 4, I further investigated the underlying cognitive processes when individuals with different levels of identity integration deal with identity cues in the context. Implications and future research directions drawing from my research will be discussed.
