    Hi guys!

    I'm writing an essay in which I am evaluating social identity theory while making references to relevant studies (Tajfel, Cialdini etc.). I have no problem in evaluating the research/study, but am completely lost when it comes to evaluating the theory itself.

    I need some help in evaluating social identity theory by including the strengths and limitations regarding the theory itself, and moreover, how can I organise my paragraphs in the essay when it comes to evaluating the theory?

    Many thanks!

    Hi! I may have a method to evaluate theories which may be helpful for you. Please do pm me if you want to know what it is. It would help with the evaluation of ANY theories in Psychology.

    Best,
