Psychologists have long been intrigued by the origins of cognition and the organization of the mind. We’ve begun to find some answers by employing sound scientific procedures and statistical analysis.
This course provides an overview of the principles of social psychology. You will study about three important topics of psychology in this beginning course:
1. Priming and Accessibility: How is the mind organized, and how may our brains deceive us into viewing the world in biased ways?
We discuss the concept of a schema and examine much research on the power of priming.
2. Heuristics and Biases: What are our brain’s shortcuts?
We like to think we’re being careful and sensible when we make a decision or develop a judgment, yet our minds demand rapid solutions.
These shortcuts might sometimes lead us wrong.
3. Attribution: We often wonder why other people do the things they do when we see them.
Are they responsible for their decisions, or do we believe they are influenced by external factors?
Attribution theories attempt to explain it.
