Comm 1: Interpersonal Communication Week 2 and 3 Notes Chapter 3 Fundamental attribution error Explains why we are wrong in our thinking -Examples: studied hard -> bad score -> unfair Why I make a mistake, I look for outside excuses that don’t involve/blame me Others= long term Me= mistaken/ not long term Halo affect (94) There are certain things about a person that cause us to assume things about them Ex: good looks lead to assuming they are smart or nice Occupational Roles Occupational psychosis Prisoner Guard Study (video): Professor Phillip Zambarto -Main example -Misuse of power and authority of police in video -Patina of Stanford- police violated law because Stanford professor asked them to -Although it’s a study, they are still intimidated -Guard instructions: maintain law/order and no violence -Inmate 8612 because irrational which eventually lead to his release form the experiment after punishment/violence, ex: spraying fire extinguisher on bare skin -Inmates were cleaned on 3 day and visitors were allowed -Guard: acting/ claiming he was into theater as an excuse or explanation Sadistic/naturally cruel (observed) Zombarto is the real sadist -Guard and professor like to see others in pain -Prisoners never said calm down or stop this its only an experiment -Zombarto only showed results to 1 female grad. student. Her reaction: “I think its terrible what you are doing to those boys” “sick to her stomach” and turns away Zombarto was showing off for sexual thrill and they eventually got married This was the point where Zombarto realized how bad it looked, than he later cancelled the study (6 days completed out of 2 full weeks planned) -Shows Zombarto’s bias/involvement/cruelty Chapter 4 Pg 119: emotionally charged events lead to reappraisal -Reappraisal helps one to feel better/ less hurt or emotional Sometimes true/sometimes an error Key Chapter Concept: Emotions Emotion Labor- situation that require us to manage or suppress an emotion -Ex: good news for you and bad new for a friend leads you to suppress happiness from good news in order to be generous towards your friend Emotional Contagion- catching an emotion from another person through observation or interaction -Ex: happiness/ excitement/ sadness/ fear *Laughter is the most contagious* It is hardwired into our brain It is a biological trigger in brain, which causes other emotions to fade away Even if the cause of laughter isn’t known, you brain still reacts Halo effect: Video example with broken down cars and charity fundraising with an emphasis on physical appearance/attractiveness -Looks/appearance are largely influential. Video shows this through the broken car, fundraising, and interview examples -More attractive= more opportunity/success -Most attractive person always won appearance based bias from employers
