Me: a somewhat better version of nor mal
-In a study, out of 800 000 people, not a single one rated themselves as “below average”
in social skills, and 25% said they were in the top 1%!!!!!
-Our “self is whatever we conceptualize it to be! It is very f lexible
-We tend to think that everything that has to do with us is more impor tant than what has
to do with other people
Fundamental Attribution Error: our self-protective biases play a role in how we explain our
and others’ behaviours
-Describes common ways in which we tend to explain peoples’ behaviours
-We are good at blaming our own undesirable behaviours on “other factors but take
full responsibility for when t hings tur n out well
In-group Favor itism – Out-group Derogation
-We extend our self-serving biases to whatever we identify with, such as our in-groups
-Dot group experiment: lol
-This process is very comfor ting.
-When we see atrocities and horribl e acts committed by other ppl, we can say “they
arent like us
There are many different ways in which the self is integrated with others.

perceptions, beliefs, behaviours, etc.
