Social Psychology 206—Social Cognition Please recall ABC in Social Psychology A (Affect), B (Behavior), and C (Cognition)  Social psychologists are interested in how our affect and cognition work together each other to cause behavior.  Social Cognition: manner in which we perceive and construe info about the social world  Social perception- developed the idea of social cognition Limitations in Social Cognition:  Information Overload: situation in which our ability to process info is exceeded by the amount of info  Schema and Script: mental frame works for holding and processing social information 1. Schemas: blueprints for how familiar people, objects and events usually function  Schemas are normally very convenient for helping us organize and make sense of world & to fill in the cracks of our knowledge  particularly significant when we come across information that can be understood in a number of ways, because they help us reduce ambiguity  Schemas also help people fill in the blanks when they are trying to remember things 2. Scripts: mental frameworks relating to specific situations Theories of Emotion: A (Affect), B (Behavior), and C (Cognition) Social psychologists are interested in how our affect and cognition interact each other to cause behavior.  Emotion: a conscious evaluative reaction to some event conscious process to label affect  Affect: the automatic response that something is good or bad Unconscious feeling How do our moods influence our thoughts? Current moods strongly affect how we perceive new stimuli: bad moods cause us to think more sysmatically, while good moods lead us to think more superficially Mood-dependent memory- info learned in a certain mood is recalled easier in the same mood Mood congruence effects- we notice and remember info congruent with our current moods
