  5. 5. 2 INTRODUCTION The selected theme for this project is “Dating Experience” while the social psychological concepts applied include stereotypes, first impression, accommodation, intrinsic motivation, self-fulfilling prophecy, counterfactual thinking and compassionate love. This project consists of three components which includes making up a three to five minutes video clip by incorporating at least five social psychological concepts learnt in class, written report of the clip and an oral presentation. Students are required to construct a storyline based onrandom selected theme discussed among the group and to film a short video clip to deliver the messages and theories applied. The applicationof social psychological concepts should be clearly portrayed and delivered to the audience. A well-structured oral presentation is needed for a further explanation and elaboration on the highlights and major focus of the video. A detail report should also be prepared through proper documentation to demonstrate clearly the process of development and progression in different stages upon the completion of the project. Besides, this project allows students to recognize and identify the connections among different concepts and perspectives within not only the social psychology context but also other principles. Moreover, students are also able to be engaged in psychological inquiry and become self-regulated learners. Apart from that, an in-depth understanding can be developed towards the learning subject
  6. 6. 3 through individual research and group study. Last but not least, students are also able to enhance their skills in report writing, development of ideas, analysis of obtained information and as well as in the field of oral presentation. INTRODUCTION In this project, we need to make a three minutes video clip by incorporating the concepts of social psychology which learned in the class throughout this module, Social Psychology. The concepts that apply in the video should not be less than five concepts. This project allows students to recognize and identify the connections among concepts and perspectives within psychology and with other disciplines. This project allows students to engage in psychological inquiry and become self-regulated learners. SUMMARY The story revolves around an old couple, Mr Jackson and Ms Sarah, who are of different nationality, race and culture. In this short video, the couple explain how they met for the first time and how their relationship prospered during their younger days. Sarah, who is of asian descent studying in the United Kingdom, first caught the attention of Jackson, in the library of her university. Sarah then follows to stereotype Jackson, who is of english descent, as a common British boy. Jackson tries his best to woo Sarah but does not prevail. Sarah tries avoiding Jackson at first, but after a week later, he brings her a flower as a symbol of friendship. Their relationship progresses as “just friends” but deep down they both have feelings towards one another. The story takes a turn when Jackson decides to ask Sarah out on an actual date, Sarah is unsure at first but then she decides to follows her instinct and eventually says yes. During the date, was clearly very nervous as she did not want to ruin her relationship with Jackson. She had a feeling of regret after her date and straight away writes her feelings down in a diary. Little does she know that Jackson actually likes the awkwardness about her. They then eventually end up as a couple, and 20 years later, they tell their story in the form of this video.

  11. 11. 8 7. Presentation Two members were in charged of the preparationof presentation slides whereby one is responsible for the content and the other carries the task in editing and designing of the slides. After the task has been completed, each members was then given a specific part to present. Arrangements have also been made among the members to ensure a smooth presentation flow. APPLICATION OF CONCEPTS 1. Stereotype Explanation : Stereotype is a general belief about a particular group or class of people. It is also a schema that helps to organize our knowledge and beliefs about various social groups. It structures our expectations and influence how we perceive incoming messages. However, it differs from prejudice such that it can be positive, negative, or neutral. Stereotypes based on gender, ethnicity, or occupation are common in many societies. Application : Sarah tends to generalized all the White guys as people who are obnoxious and contemptible due to her negative racial stereotype. She thought of them as a bunch of douchebags in which they carried the trait of a party animal, drinker and a smoker. 2. First Impression
  12. 12. 9 Explanation : First impression is the situation when one person first encounters another person and forms a mental image of that person. They are not deliberate but can be instantaneous. People often draw trait inferences from the facial appearance of other people. Besides, what is beautiful is often perceived as a good effect. Research has found that impressions are formed with only an exposure time of 10 seconds. Application : Sarah’s first impression of Jackson is that he is a flirty player. She got pretty annoyed and thought of him as a “jerk” while Jackson was only trying to have a friendly chat with her. As Sarah already has a stereotype which gives her a sense of dislike towards the Whites, the first conversation that Jackson had with her had only led her to her confirmation bias and at the same time left a bad impression whereby Sarah thinks that she is just another girl that Jackson is trying to flirt with. 3. Accommodation Explanation : According to Jean Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development, accommodation is the process in which we modify an existing schema to accommodate a new stimulus or to include a new piece of information. However, if modification does not work, a new schema will be formed. Application : Sarah initially thought that she can never get along well with the White guys as she has a deep-seated aversion towards them due to her negative stereotypes. However, when she began to know more about Jackson and got introduced to his friends, she realized that she should not just stereotypically judge all of them because there are some of them who are actually kind and
  13. 13. 10 friendly too. By relating this to the social psychological concept, her mind has gone through a process of accommodation, a modification of existing schemas has taken place. The beliefs that she used to have towards the Whites have changed. 4. Intrinsic motivation Explanation : Intrinsic motivation refers to behavior that is driven by internal rewards. In other words, the motivation to engage in a behavior arises from within the individual because it is intrinsically rewarding. Application : Sarah has decided to go on a date with Jackson the moment when she found out that she likes him. Driven by the motivation to be with someone that she likes, she chose to give Jackson a “yes” when he asked her out. In other words, she went on the date because it is intrinsically rewarding such that she felt happy and looking forward to it. 5. Self-fulfilling prophecy Explanation : Self-fulling prophecy is the beliefs that lead to their own fulfillment. It is a situation when a person unknowingly causes a prediction to come true, due to the simple fact that he or she
  14. 14. 11 expects it to come true. In other words, an expectation about a subject, such as a person or event, can affect our behavior towards that subject, which causes the expectation to be realized. Application : When Sarah was asked to go on a date with Jackson, overwhelmed with the feeling of excitement, Sarah was feeling extra nervous and preoccupied with the thoughts that she might screw up the date as she was afraid that she’d be acting weird and put herself into an awkward position. It turns out that her own expectations were becoming true. When she went on the date, she acted weird and unpleasant in a way that she was making an easy conversation difficult. Jacksontoo, felt that Sarah was prettyawkward even though in fact, Sarah was just feeling nervous and trying her best to cope with the situation. 6. Counterfactual thinking Explanation : Counterfactual thinking is literally thinking counter to the facts. It is a situation whereby an individual creates possible alternatives to life events that have already occurred. It is often epitomized by the phrase “what might have been”. Besides, it has a big impact on our emotional response to an experience. Upward counterfactuals are mental simulations of better possible outcomes. Downward counterfactuals have the focus on how things might have been much worse. Both forms have emotional and behavioral consequences. Application : Sarah imagined what might have been if she had not been that nervous and acted all weird during her date with Jackson. She was also feeling frustrated as she thought how things would have turned out entirely different if she was able to stay calm and act natural without thinking too much.
  15. 15. 12 7. Compassionate love Explanation : Compassionate love is the affection that a person has for the someone whom their lives are deeply intertwined. It is characterized by mutual respect, attachment, affection, and deep sense of trust for one another. It usually develops out of feelings of mutual understanding, shared values and life experiences. It is also more calm and stable as compared to passionate love. Besides, it is sometimes considered to have two components, intimacy and commitment. Intimacy is the warm, close, sharing aspect of a relationship where as commitment is the intent to continue the relationship even in the face of difficulties. Application : Sarah and Jackson have developed a calm and stable relationship through mutual respect, trust and understanding for each other. They have a deep, mature and affectionate attachment for one another and have come a long way to their long-lasting relationship. Their commitment and love for each other remains strong even after 20 years together. .

  24. 24. 21 Lillian Tan Ai Jun Old Sarah APPENDIX 1. VIDEO SCRIPT J - Jackson S - Sarah W - Waiter S : I think it was uhm 1980 S/J : 2! S : As usual I was by myself at the library, reading. And that’s when I saw your father for the first time. Now it wasn’t much of a big deal seeing a white guy, considering I was studying in the UK. Most of the white guys there, were such douchebags. They partied a lot, drank a lot and smoked a lot. J : I was the total opposite. S : That was pretty much all they did. So I kinda just ignored him. J : I tried talking to her, I told her she looked good.
  25. 25. 22 S : He tried talking to me, he told me I was hot. I thought to myself “damn, what a jerk” I picked up my books and left. J : I felt bad I mean I just wanted a friendly chat and she just left. I didn’t see her again for a week. But I do remember passing a garden and thinking I’m going to get these flowers and pass them to the girl I met a week ago. S : He came up to me while I was busy reading. He said something like.. uhm what did you say again? J : I think it was something like “Hi do you like flowers?” then I just passed her the flowers. S : I was kinda taken aback at first, but then I thought it was kinda sweet and that’s when I had this instant thing for him. S : We became pretty close over the summer, J : We weren’t dating we just hung out as friends. S : Yeah, that was when my whole views on white guys changed. Your dad was very hardworking and far from a douchebag. Also I started hanging out with his friends and they made it pretty obvious that he had a thing for me too. J : I did. So I found the courage to ask her out on a real date.
  26. 26. 23 S : I was super nervous about it when he asked me, but I really enjoyed his company and I was starting to like him so I managed to squeeze out a yes. S : I remember just hours before he picked me up for our first date I was so nervous that I might screw it up and be awkward. J : She was very awkward. W : What would you like to drink miss? S : Uhmmm.. I’ll have uhm a water yeah W : That’s all? J : Yeah I think she’s good. S : I was trying my best to be as calm as possible okay! It felt pretty weird and uncomfortable. S : I remember coming home and immediately writing down how horrendous that first date was in my diary. I knew it was my fault. If only I was less awkward around him. J : But I liked that about you. *Laugh* S : A month had passed, and weird enough we actually became a couple.
  27. 27. 24 J : And 20 years later, here we are, still going strong. The End. 2.
