A brief review of how social psychology relates to other, similar fields.
What makes experimental studies so useful in the study of social psychology? How do experimental studies allow researchers to draw conclusions about cause-and-effect relationships?
What do you do when you can't do an experiment? What is it that correlational studies allow you to say about the relationship between two variables? And what does that have to do with how people differ?
The difference you found between the two groups from your experiment could have happened by chance (as could the relationship you found between the two variables in your correlational study). Really. Always. So,...How do you decide whether your findings might be "real"?
Apparently, you can explain about why people do what they do...when you want to.
Sometimes you don't work very hard at it (explaining, that is).
No time to think? Not enough information to figure things out? Feeling lazy? Use a mental shortcut to solve your problems.
What attitudes are all about.
What do I think about that? Just ask my behavior!
Thinking--or not--about persuasive messages.
How can you construct a persuasive message that will work?
