Learning Goal: I’m working on a psychology writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.How do you form your first impressions of others? Do you look at their clothes or body language? Do you compare them in some way to someone else you know with similar characteristics? Do you allow your personal biases and prejudices to influence how you perceive the person? Does culture influence your impressions of others? Think about an example of making a social judgment about another person or a group of people. For instance, if you met a mother with four young children, you probably would have some preconceived ideas of what she is like and how she will behave. This expected behavior will be very different from a distinguished looking elderly man in a suit and bowtie. You probably make some kind of judgment with every encounter you have or observation you make of others.This week, you explore social cognition and perception which deal with how people make sense of the world around them. This week’s readings focus on how the brain uses schemas and heuristics to make automatic inferences. You also study how additional factors, such as unintentional nonverbal communication, impact our impressions of other people.
Select one person in each category below:A person you do not know and who you probably will not see again (clerk at the grocery store, etc.)
A person you have known for some time and for whom you can remember your first impressions (acquaintance, friend, spouse, etc.)
Briefly describe each person including his or her specific behavior at your first meeting, the context of your interaction with each person, and your first impression of each person.
Explain whether you made external (situational) and/or internal (dispositional) attributions for each person’s behavior during that first meeting.
Did you engage in automatic thinking or controlled thinking in forming your first impression of each person? Explain. What, if any, schemas or heuristics did you use?
With which culture(s) do you identify? According to the information in this week’s readings, how does your culture influence your impressions of others? For example, (a) how does your culture influence the content of a particular schema (Aronson, Wilson, & Sommers, 2019, p. 70), (b) which culturally-specific display rules influence your impressions (Aronson, Wilson, & Sommers, 2019, pp. 889-90), or (c) when have you engaged in holistic or analytic thinking as your culture would predict (Aronson, Wilson, & Sommers, 2019, p. 110)
