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

Unformatted text preview: -audiences were allowed to react back then so. ..how much did the audience reaction affect tv viewers' opinions?-they showed the debate to ppl who barely knew about it with audience reaction to half but to other half, used special effects to get rid of audience-as can see, rating of unedited is far more positive than edited-45% thought he did a good job but 70% thinks he wins if heard the laugh track too-we wish canned laughter (like on cheesy comedies) didn't work, but sadly, they do work-leaving the idea that how funny a president is indicates his control over the big red button, the idea of being affected by total strangers is disturbing-nobody would say "oh hey I heard a lot of laughter, I should vote for that guy", but this evidence shows a really good chance of that happening...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
