Transcript of "Social spychology journal 2"

  1. 1. NAME: PARHAM FARHADPOOR STUDENT ID: 0313698 SUBJECT: SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY LECTURER: MS. PANG CHIA YEE COURSE: FNBE APRIL 2013 INTAKE
  2. 2. Journal: Attitudes The fourth social psychology was about components and theories of attitudes, and the first thing that came out was the definition which says that attitudes are positive or negative evaluations of objects of thoughts that includes many things. So in class,the lecturer discussed with studentsabout the components and they are cognitive, affective, and behavioral and the factors that can change them are source, message and receiver and also some examples. After that students took a look at some interesting and also creative advertisements such as posters and billboards and then learning about theories of attitude change such as evaluative conditioning, operant conditioning, and observational learning.Then the lecturer explained more about the operant condition and process contains stimulus, response, and finally effect on behavior or learning and as an example we discussed about the Skinner box and cumulative recorder. Next the lecture went through observational condition which is learning from observing or in other word “monkey see monkey do’’ and based on Albert Bandura it includes four key processes such as attention, retention, reproduction, and motivation, so after that we discussed about crimes and media effects on them and as examples we looked on some newspaper titles. At the end the last topic that discussed was cognitive dissonance and having fun by answering the quiz which students should say the color of the worlds.
  3. 3. Journal: Conformity and Group Behavior This lecture’s topic was about conformity and group behavior, so we discussed about how behaviors by different ways. As an example in the class if everyone answer a question wrongly and even one student thinks that the answer, he still follow others and answer the same with others, so his behavior has been affected and controlled by his classmates. After that we specified on conformity, actually it involves yielding to social pressure and it divides into group size to a point and group. Next we watched a video about Stanley Milgram controversial landmark experiment which was very interesting and the lecturer told us that Nazis used to do the same punishment on that time. In this experiment the student sits on an electric shock seat and one teacher asks questions from him and if he answer it wrong the teacher use the electric shock and every time increase the level and the examiner experiment teachers about how long they can continue, but since the student and the teacher are in different rooms and it’s just an experiment, the student get out of the seat and it’s just to test the teachers. Then we focused more on social roles which is the power of situations and “situation appropriate” behavior, so we watched a video which a man tries to kidnap a little girl but it is fake and they were trying to capture others reaction and it was interesting to see that many of people didn’t do anything to help the girl, but at the end two black young guys tried to help that girl. At the end we learnt about benefits of groups and as examples, group of doctors can get the better results or groups are better in solving complicated logic problems.
