Week 1(4) Situational construal & naïve realism -study done with the prisoner's dilemma game -two ppl whose outcomes are jointly dependent - can either cooperate or not cooperate & usually don't get to discuss with the other person first so u have to figure out what the other person wants to do -why bring this up? Cuz…. Experiment -wanted to see who tend to be cooperators or defectors - went to the dorm advisors and asked them to nominate the ppl who would likely be cooperators or defectors -played the prisoner's dilemma game but half told game called "Wall Street game" while other half, the "community game" - personality account vs social labeling -over half cooperated in community game - ppl tend to be more aware of social norms & whether ppl were nominated as cooperators or defectors had nothing to do with it -essentially, less to do with personality, but more to do with social norms Ronald reagan debate - he was old but turned the tied election around after the live audience debate
