Psychology Week 12: (4/18, 4/20, 4/22) Social Psychology: -Concerned with the impact of social processes on individuality- how we view another and are influenced by one another -> Social perceptions and attitudes -> Social influences and behaviors A. Making Attributions and Observed Behaviors; a. Evaluating odd things – relating a person’s behaviors to a specific cause b. Kelly’s attributional logic model (logical to determine behavior) i. This model follows a set of question to ask oneself when considering/observing`````` a behavior: Ex: 1) When I am walking down the streets of Paris, France, do I ignore the beggars that sit on the streets, or do I give them money? a. No : no personality/situational attribution b. Yes: 2) do many others ignore people asking for money? a. Yes: situational attribution-people asking for money leads to ambivalence (don’t care) b. No: 3) do I regularly ignore people in many other situations? i. Yes: personality attribution-general ii. No: personality attribution – specific situations **IN order to ask these questions and get answers, you need adequate information-> you need time for deliberation of making the decision -> need motivation c. Making attributions from observed behavior can cause for many errors Personal Bias – fundamental attribution o Personality is overemphasized o Ignored situation Ex: a student who falls asleep in class -Personality-> just don’t care about the class OR -Situation-> maybe you are just really tired that day.. Situation Bias- o Situation is overemphasized o the personality is ignored Ex: a 2ndgrader is being very disruptive to the class, teacher, and other students. The parent of the child blames their behavior as lack of skill from the teachers or the school environment. Really it is the child’s personality. B. Stereotypes: a. Explicit= awareness, conscious, b. Implicit= less conscious, automatic (review the types of explicit and implicit memory in the first section) -Implicit stereotypes use Priming test: ability to identify a word -with the Implicit Stereotypes Priming test, there are association with race and idea that is either positive or negative. Ex: baby-face bias: people are naïve, less competent, really changes a person’s view of someone.
