PS101, Lec 21: 04/16/2013 Social Psychology: We look into how different people react similarly in different situations.  Outline handout.  Social Psychology: how society affects our behavior.  Social Perception: how we perceive others. Ex. When you see people on motorcycles you assume  they all drink beer and love heavy metal music. Not always true.  Primacy effect first impressions.

Dispositional vs. situational: many studies at the military show that soldiers in their first  day of boot camp say they don’t belong there. Then ask them the same thing 5 weeks later and they  say the other soldiers are closer to them than some family members. This is an example of  situational attribution (bonding). Dispositional attribution: People running for presidency  are always pictures kissing babies and such. They probably don’t even like presidents but they have to  do it for publicity, not dispositional of their personality. But if your football coach in high school goes  around in parents meeting kissing babies, then he might just do it because he likes to. This is  dispositional.  2.
