Psychology Notes Week 4 Social Psychology Social psychology: study of social behavior, how people influence others’ actions, thoughts and feelings Social Influence There are two types: informational and normative o Informational: you see a few people walking away from your class and assume it’s cancelled, so you check your email. You get information from what other people are doing. o Normative: social influence that leads to conformity. The influence of other people that leads us to conform in order to be liked and accepted by them. If the teacher asks “does that make sense” and everyone else starts nodding their head, you’ll nod your head even if you don’t understand Consequences of social influence o Social influence causes things to happen o Conformity is observed, it’s something you do, but why do you do it? Conformity means you’re acting like other people. Both private and public conformity are observable Public Conformity – only acting a certain way (controlling your behavior) to make a certain impression on other people even if that’s not the way you really are Private Conformity – acting how you really are. For example: getting a job and being told you have to get there at 7 every morning. Instead of showing public conformity and agreeing, you respond, I can’t get up that early, how about 9? o Asch’s research on conformity Participants were asked to compare the standard line to the comparison lines. Lines judgements were made alone and in the presence of incorrect others. When everyone else (actors) answer incorrectly, the research Dependent variable = % incorrect responses participant (who goes last) will also answer incorrectly 35% of the time.
