    Abstract

    In this chapter, we review the recently burgeoning empirical literature on ostracism, social exclusion, and rejection, and emerge with what appear to be two sets of reliable yet opposing conclusions. On the one hand, ostracism appears to set in motion behaviors that will increase the likelihood that the individual will be reincluded in the ostracizing group or will be attractive to a new group. On the other hand, social exclusion has led individuals to react antisocially, which would almost assure them of further exclusion.
