Our textbook defines social psychology as “… the scientific study of how people think about, influence, and relate to one another” (Myers & Twenge, 2019, p. 2).
For this discussion, briefly describe one of the experiments* in our text and tell whether and how it does or does not align with the definition provided above. You will see that some of the examples/experiments/scenarios described in our textbook reveal a dark side of human nature. As we consider this from a Christian worldview perspective is there any hope for us?
*Use any experiment described in our textbook. To help you get started, here are some examples you may search for: Conformity: Asch, Zimbardo, Milgram; Social Learning/Aggression: Bobo the Doll; Self-fulfilling Prophecy: Rosenthal & Jacobson
