Are you ready to begin?
Social psychology is about understanding individual behavior in a social context. It therefore looks at human behavior as influenced by other people and the social context in which this occurs.
Week 1 – Initial Discussion Posting (300+ words):
Thinking about thoughts and perception, provide a detailed response to the following question: how do we think about others, and how do they think about us? Consider what factors (both internal and external) may influence these thoughts and how easily (or not so easily) these thoughts are formed.
