Bookkeeping: Slow change by accumulating inappropriate information
Conversion: Sudden schema change by accumulating a critical mess of disconfirming evidence
Subtyping: Schemas become a subcategory after finding out about disconfirming evidence (A women who believed that all men are violent based on personal experiences will form a subcategory of non-violent men after she realized that not all men are violent)

Hey anybody knows what the task performance is all about?
Hey guys. Did anyone write down the 5 exam Questions that were mentioned in the social influence lecture? Some 2nd year students could not be there in the lecture, but would of course like to know about them!
First of all, great summary! Thanks for that.
Under the "Types of selves and identities" part there has to be a fourth type of identity: Relational Social identity; defining the self in relation to specific other people with whom one interacts in a group context.
Great idea, thank you!
Anyway, concerning prejudice & discrimination, social stigma: homosexuality is something that definitely does NOT fit into the category "controllable stigma" (the example from the book next to smoking is obesity)! It is quite impossible to change your sexuality isn't it ;D.
And it's not "cancelable stigmas" but "concealable" (= you can hide them), where homosexuality correctly fits
Hey guys, I can't share this on study drive because it's not a document but here is the link to the flashcards I made. It's far from all done yet but I'll upload more as I revise. Good luck!
thanks , they're really helpful !!! I'll use this site for my flashcards in the next period! Amazing

Anyone got some tips on how to study for the Social Behavior exam? There's so many keywords I don't even know where to start. Just learn the keywords for every specific topic and try to interconnect them? Cheers
I can just tell you which mistakes I made when I took the exam:
- I didn't bring a dictionary to the exam
- I didn't pay enough attention to definitions
- I paid too much attention to studies nobody knows about
- I didn't pay attention to the lectures, because I thought they were just duplicates of what we read
so -> look at the lectures (it's gonna give you hints what they focus on)
don't learn all the definitions, just the ones which are not too obvious (like for example door-in-the face tactic or how it's called, it's not obvious from the name).
Pay attention to the central studies mentioned in the tasks and know them really well.
Last year they asked for a very specific findings concerning the selfie article (do they still have it?), so make sure you know the details about that one.
Know the 7 steps of attitudes or whatever that was in Rob's lecture. They asked the steps of attitude forming or sth and requested the right order. I could go on but it just wouldn't be very cohesive. Maybe send me the keywords and I can try to remember what was important.
I think that the articles are more here to illustrate a particular phenomenon we've studied. Try to know what the article is about (usually in the abstract) and what were the findings (discussion part)

Thanks for uploading all these summaries!! You really save me
hey i think that question 19 is answer b ) as schema is defined as :Social schemas are 'scripts' or expectations an individual forms about how things operate within their environment. A schema is a cognitive system which helps us organize and make sense of information.it helps us to have expectations about a situation when some of the information is unknown.
so when the situation is ambiguous would make more sense i guess.
but not sure tho
I thought that because if it was vague you think more about it, to make sense of it, while if the situation doesn't make a big impression you react automatically with a schema. But again I couldn't find a precise answer so I'm not sure
Thank you for your comment!
The reason why I didn't share problem 4 so far, is that it's about 13 pages of notes and I'm not sure whether I filtered out the essential information or got too much into detail. Anyway, on your request I uploaded it, so you can decide if it is helpful for you;)
The yellow marked parts are the issues that we have definately discussed in our tutorial group...hope I could help you;)
