  3. PSY 301 UOP Courses PSY 301 Week 1 DQ 2 The Acting Self PSY 301 Week 2 Assignment Prejudice • As Feenstra (2011) states in your textbook:“Social psychologists are interested in who we are. • Our sense of self is affected by what we know about the self and by the people around us. • The self is a powerful force. The self affects how we feel, what we think we can do, and what we in fact do.” (pg. 32). • PSY 301 Week 2 Assignment Prejudice, Stereotypes, and Discrimination

  4. PSY 301 UOP Courses PSY 301 Week 2 DQ 1 Attitude and Behavior PSY 301 Week 2 DQ 2 Attributions • Reflect on the relationship between personal attitudes and resulting behaviors, using the Theory of Planned Behavior, Cognitive Dissonance Theory, and Self-Perception Theory as your references.  • If someone has a negative attitude toward a particular individual or group, for example, what are the potential implications of their behavior toward that individual or group? • How do implicit and explicit attitudes differ? • Examine the role of attributions in our social world. What are attributions, and how do we use them in our daily lives? • Discuss the differences between internal and external attributions and describe the fundamental attribution error.  • For example, what would be the explanatory style of a person who makes internal, stable, and global attributions for positive things and external, unstable, and specific attributions for negative things?

  5. PSY 301 UOP Courses PSY 301 Week 3 Assignment Persuasion Who PSY 301 Week 3 DQ 1 Persuasion Techniques • “As we explore persuasion, we can divide the persuasive communication into three parts: the communicator, the message, and the audience. • First, we will deal with what characteristics of persuaders make people more likely to be persuaded. • Next, we will think about characteristics of the message that lead people to change. • Finally, we will explore what characteristics of the audience can lead them to be persuaded.” (Feenstra, 2011, p. 88). • Table 8.1 in your textbook highlights various techniques used in persuasive messaging, including foot-in-the door, low-ball, door-in-the face, reciprocity, etc.  • After examining all the techniques, choose three to address in your discussion.

  6. PSY 301 UOP Courses PSY 301 Week 3 DQ 2 Obedience and Conformity PSY 301 Week 4 Asssignment Power of Love and Relationships • By most definitions, if we are persuaded by an individual, we are said to be obedient to that individual. • If we are persuaded by a group, we are said to have conformed to that group’s objectives. • Compare and contrast the core differences between these two concepts. • In what ways do group and individual persuasion techniques differ? • As social beings, why are we naturally prone to conformity and obedience? • Describe the factors of attraction. What attracts us to one another? • Why are we less likely to befriend someone from another culture than someone from a similar background with a similar physical aesthetic? • Discuss the human need to build bonds and relationships. Do we have an innate need to belong? If so, why? How is this need attached to our emotions, our social bonds, and our fear of deprivation?

  7. PSY 301 UOP Courses PSY 301 Week 4 DQ 1 Altruism and ProsocialBehavior PSY 301 Week 4 DQ 2 Aggression • Examine the concept of altruism and altruistic behavior. What does it mean for someone to behave altruistically? • What is gained from this action, and how does it differ from egoistic behavior? • What are some reasons why people would want to help one another, without regard for personal gain or benefit?  • In addition, explain the bystander effect.  If we all have a genuine desire to help one another, why is the effect so common?  • Although we label some behaviors as aggressive, we also neglect a multitude of other actions that qualify as aggressive behaviors. • As mentioned in your textbook, what matters is the intent of the action, not necessarily the action itself. 

  8. PSY 301 UOP Courses PSY 301 Week 5 DQ 1 Groupthink PSY 301 Week 5 DQ 2 Social Dilemmas • Watch the Groupthink video, and explain why the concept of “groupthink” doesn’t necessarily have a positive connotation. • Describe what groupthink refers to, and discuss the conditions that must be present in order for this process to occur. • What are the characteristics of groupthink, and what are the potential consequences of the group’s decision making process? • There are three social dilemmas presented in Chapter 15 of your textbook: tragedy of the commons or the commons dilemma, resource dilemma, and prisoner’s dilemma. • Choose two of these concepts to discuss, and explain how each is related to social problems in society.

  9. PSY 301 UOP Courses PSY 301 Week 5 Final Paper Social Psychology Bringing It All Together • “Social psychologists investigate how we view ourselves and others, how we interact with others, how we influence others, and how we act when we are part of a group. • Given the amount of time each of us spend thinking about and interacting with the people we encounter every day, much of our lives are spent with the subject matter of social psychology.” (Feenstra, 2011, p.22).
