In two online experimental studies conducted in Germany and China in 2022, we tested three different kinds of priming methods for constructive and blind patriotism. Subjects were randomly distributed to one of three treatments motivated by previous studies on different countries: a constructive patriotism priming treatment, a blind patriotism priming treatment and a non-priming baseline. While the first experiment had a between-subject design, the second one enabled both a between-subject and within-subject comparison, since the level of patriotism of individuals was measured before and after priming respectively. The results showed that some of the tested methods functioned well overall for constructive patriotism only, while the priming for blind patriotism did not work in either Germany or China.
