Presentation Transcript
• Take 10 minutes to observe people outside
• Come up with 3 research questions
• Write down the 3 questions on a piece of paper
• Write down the observation that led to these question

OBSERVATION QUESTION

• What did you come up with?

OBSERVATION QUESTION

What's next?
• Plausibility stage
• Is the idea worthy of actual testing?
• Acceptability stage
• Mold the plausible idea into a working hypothesis
Negative Correlation

r = - .85

r = .00

Correlation Coefficient
• The sign of a correlation (+ or -) only tells you the direction of the relationship
• The value of the correlation only tells you about the size of the relationship (i.e., how close the scores are to the regression line)
• Correlations and cause and effect
Which is a bigger effect?

r = .40 or r = -.40

How are they different?

Practice
• Do you think the following variables are positively, negatively or uncorrelated to each other?
• Alcohol consumption & Driving skills
• Miles of running a day & speed in a foot race
• Height & GPA
• Forearm length & foot length
Practice
• 1) Complete Questionnaire #1
• Do you like going to art museums?
• Do you talk to a lot of different people at parties?
• What time did you wake up this morning (the hour)?

Observational Research
• Steps
• What do you want to do? What is your hypothesis?
• 2) Figure out how to code your observations
• Will you use a videotape, questionnaire, EAR, etc.?
• Just do it!
• 4) Create a coding system
• How will you quantify your data?
• What do the data tell you?
Observational Research
• Types of Observational Research
• Laboratory Research
• Internet Research
• Naturalistic Research
Observational Research in the Laboratory
• Pros:
• Controlled environment
• Can control for extraneous variables (random assignment)
• Cons:
• Not realistic
Outline
• Observational Research in the Laboratory
• 1) Examples of observational lab research
• 2) P II: Single behavior studies
• 3) P III: Multiple behavior studies

During interpersonal interactions how does the behavior of a person affect the behavior of another person?
Interpersonal Theory
• Leary’s complementarity
• Interpersonal behaviors tend to initiate or invite reciprocal interpersonal behaviors from the “other” person in the interaction
• Act the same on “warmth”
• Warmth encourages warmth
• Coldness encourages coldness
• Act the opposite on “dominance”
• Dominance encourages submission
• Submission encourages dominance
Method
• Participates
• 79 males; 79 females
• Each participant interacted in three different situations with an opposite sex stranger
Coding Behaviors
• For each interaction, social behaviors were coded by four different judges
• Example: Dominance behaviors
• “Expresses warmth”
• “Exhibits social skills”
• “Expresses criticism”
• “Expresses hostility”
• Example: Warmth behaviors
• “Tries to control the interaction”
• “Speaks in a loud voice”
• “Seeks reassurance”
• “Expresses insecurity”
Results
• Warmth

r = .45

• Dominance

r = -.39

Observational Research
• Steps
• I wonder how our behaviors affect the behaviors of our interaction partners
• 2) Figure out how to code your observations
• I will videotape these behaviors
• Participants came into a lab
• 4) Create a coding system
• I will use the RBQ
Project II – Single behavioral observations
• Relating questionnaires to single behavioral observations in the lab.
Say
• “I am going out now, I won’t be back all day. If anyone comes by, just tell them I’m not here”
• Happy
• How good of an actor is this person?
• Rate 1-10 (1= bad actor; 10= great actor)
Self-Monitoring
• How much do you “monitor” your social setting and alter your behaviors accordingly
• High SM
• Monitor every situation
• Look for cues how to act, alter behavior
• Low SM
• Consistent behavior regardless of situation
Self-Monitoring
• Related to smoking in youths
• Specifically, youths who think it is normal to smoke and are high SM are 3.5 times more likely to smoke!
Self-Monitoring
• Other findings (just for fun):
• Video tapped group discussion
• High SM interview better for jobs
• High SM more likely to lie to go on dates
• High SM pleasure self more often

Current question: Are high self-monitors better actors?

Current study
• I wonder what high SM are better actors?
• 2) Figure out how to code your observations
• I think I will code people acting in the class room and have them self-report their SM
• Just do it!
• 4) Create a coding system
• We used a simple one-item code of “acting”
• 5) Analyze the data!

• What did the data tell us?
• Told us if SM was related to acting
Perceiving Others
• Am I:
• Extraverted?
• Agreeable?
• Conscientious?
• Open to experience?
• Neurotic?
• A drug user?
