There are many methods psychologists use to research their hypothesis or explore research questions. In social psychology in particular, common methods include observational, survey, or experimental/quasi-experimental, among others. For this discussion, identify a social psychology question or hypothesis that is of interest to you (for example, why do people tend to buy a product more if they see an attractive or famous person advertising it) and briefly describe how you might go about researching that topic using one of the research methods described in your readings this week. Why do you think that method is a good fit for your question/topic? Are there any methods that wouldn't work well? Why/why not? How does this method in particular relate to social psychology research as compared to research in other fields?

Consider what social dynamics would have influenced your choices. What impact, if any, does the time in history that this study was conducted have on its results? If this study was conducted today, would the results be the same? Why/why not?

There are so many variables that factor into the psychology of attraction. Interpersonal attraction and sociability are essential to the survival of the human species. However, human interactions have changed significantly over the past 100 years with the advent of the telephone, social media, and the Internet. In the context of your readings and research this week, discuss whether you believe that long-distance relationships are sustainable and realistic for the continuation of attraction. In particular, consider your response in the context of Sternberg's Theory of Love.

When it comes to aggression, self-control is one of the most important factors in keeping one's destructive side from emerging. Your discussion post will include two parts this week. In Part I, describe a time that you witnessed aggression in others.

What were the circumstances of the incident?

What made the situation escalate?

What social psychology components related to aggression were at work (situational factors, social rejection, obedience, conformity, social learning theory, etc.)

In Part II, reflect on each step of the incident and what you witnessed or felt. Then describe what the person could have done differently to stop the situation from resulting in aggression. Connect your recommendations to specific concepts or theories discussed this week such as rumination, self-control, or aggressive cues.

Week 8 Discussion

Who Do We Help?

Required Resources

Read/review the following resources for this activity:

Textbook: Chapter 10

Lesson 8

Minimum of 2 sources cited (assigned readings/online lessons and an outside scholarly source)

Initial Post Instructions

Consider our exploration of factors that lead us to help, as well as those that direct us to helping certain people over others that we discussed this past week. To prepare for this discussion, find a spot in a public place that has lots of people. For example, a bench at a park, the food court at your local mall, etc. Make sure you select somewhere busy where you are likely to see numerous encounters among strangers. Now, for 30-60 minutes, observe carefully the interactions you see around you, making note of any helping/positive behaviors (holding the door open for someone, letting someone go ahead in line, helping someone pick up something they dropped, waving or smiling in greeting, etc.). When you see someone engaging in helping behavior, note as many details as you can about all of those involved in the exchange. Age, race, attractiveness, clothing, type of help, nature of the exchange, etc. Take some time to reflect on patterns you noted in your observations.

Now, respond to the following in your discussion:

What patterns did you find, if any, in your observations?

Did they fit with the theory and research we discussed this week?

If so, how so? If not, why not?

Remember to be specific when making connections between your observations and relevant theory and research.
