NOVAES, Felipe Carvalho  e  AQUINO, Sibele Dias de. Post-pandemic world: Individual and political consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2021, vol.26, n.1, pp. 3-12. ISSN 1413-294X.

The Covid-19 pandemic may bring a series of specific individual, psychosocial, and political changes around the world. This is because human beings have a behavioral immune system that allows them to modify their behavior to avoid possible threats of contamination. It is known that outgroup individuals can be carriers of germs for which there are no immune agents to fight, and therefore, people tend to distance themselves from these individuals. This change in behavior can lead to greater xenophobia, ethnocentrism, and prejudice against social minorities, reflecting more conservative and authoritarian political directions. Thus, this article aimed at addressing, based on a theoretical framework, possible individual, social, and political consequences of the context caused by the pandemic. For this, studies on contamination risk and prevalence of pathogens in general will be discussed, as well as recent studies on Covid-19 and its individual and psychosocial consequences.

Palavras-chave : covid-19; conservatism; authoritarianism; personality; biopsychosocial.
