  1. 1. FNBE0413 Kelvin Ng 0315081 PSYC0103 1st OCT 2013 It was the first class for my Social Psychology (PSYC0103) module and I’ve got to know my lecturer of this module which is Ms Pang Chia Yee. We get to know each other through introduction and she brief through about this module and cure our curiosity about Social Psychology which we think psychology means reading mind. Miss Pang is a very funny person for me as she always tell different joke that most of Malaysian don’t understand. She also did a simple psychology experiment so called ‘Shyness Scale’ by Cheek &Buss, 1981.This experiment was used to measure how shy of a person. First of all, she show up questionnaires on the power point slide and we are asked to mark the score. At the end of the test, we were told to reverse all the score that we got. Then, we add up all the score we got and typically I found that I’m actually a shy person. I though I’m an open person before the experiment and day by day I realize that it was just a mask that I put onto my face, it’s very accurate ! Somehow I like Social Psychology class as I think it was quite interesting and fun. Anyway this module is more relax compared with core module and the main factor is this module have less homework! 1|Page
  2. 2. FNBE0413 Kelvin Ng 0315081 PSYC0103 8th OCT 2013 Today, we had a class about knowing ourselves. According to Miss Pang we (adolescence) were always wonder about ourselves, whether we made the right decision or not, or maybe had we chosen the right path of our life to be an architect? ‘There were always an explanation whether it’s right or wrong about ourselves’, she said. Most of the time, selfexplanation were always wrong and we actually influenced by other people or our surrounding. For an example, the reason why I came to Taylor’s University was not totally about the quality of the university and it was about the fame. Taylor’s was famous with their environments and architecture but the main factor why I came for Taylor’s University is mostly because of it was officially recognized by LAM (Lembaga Architect Malaysia). Otherwise, there are also an experiment conducted by Woodzicka and LaFrance in the year of 2001 asked woman on how they would feel if they were asked sexually harassing questions on a job interview. Participants predict that they will feel angry but when it comes to reality they actually more often experience fear! In addition, people have mispredicted how they would feel sometimes after a romantic breakup, receiving a gift, losing an election, winning a game, and being insulted by Gillbert& Ebert, 2002;Lowerstein &Schkade, 1999. In this class, I’d learned a lot about myself, I’m no who I think I am which other person knows my personality even more than myself. 2|Page
  3. 3. FNBE0413 Kelvin Ng 0315081 PSYC0103 19thNOV 2013 In today class, Miss Pang talked about attitudes and social judgement. Attitudes are positive or negative of objects of thoughts. The 3 of the component of attitudes included cognitive, affective, and behavioural. Our behaviour is affected by our attitudes. Then she showed us few creative poster that attract others attention without emphasis the product physically. After that, something interesting that make me like this class the most is she showed us about learning of behaviour such as monkey learn monkey do, this is the most common method used by pet trainer to train their pet to do specific act that looks like human such as parrot recognizing words. The learning progress start from the stimulus then response and lastly it came to affect it’s behaviour. There are also consequences that reinforced the responses of a living things, primary reinforcers are commonly satisfying their biological needs while secondary reinforcers means conditioned reinforcement which depends on the situation for example money is human’s secondary reinforces when human work every single day to earn their salary. Anyway, there are always something to motivate them for their behaviour whether they did it nicely or not. In this lecture, I’d learned a lot about attitudes and behaviour of myself. 3|Page
