The present study explores the effects of metaphorical frames on intragroup processes under conditions of internal conflict. Participants were exposed to metaphors of either journey (invokes progress) or unity (invokes harmony), and presented with criticism about the group by an ingroup member. Results found the unity frame to elicit more positive perceptions of the group than the journey frame.
