Science of Psychology Fall 2011 Vocabulary for Exam 3 Below is a list of vocabulary words from each of the textbook chapters. For the most part, it is simply a list of the words that are emboldened in the text. It would be to your advantage to be familiar enough with these terms that you would feel comfortable using them in a conversation about psychology. If you do not know the definition of a term, write it out in your own words. Writing the definition in your own words will help you remember it/understand it better than you would if you just copied the definition out of the text. As before, there will be questions on the exam from the parts of the chapters that we do not cover, but they will be less challenging questions than we will ask about topics we do cover in class. Also, there is a study guide for the text available in the book store. Further, the textbook website had a lot of good resources for studying and self-test, including on-line flashcards for the vocabulary words. Social Psychology Causal attribution Situational attributions Dispositional attributions Individualistic cultures Collectivistic cultures Fundamental attribution error Implicit theories of personality Stereotypes Prejudice Out-group homogeneity effect Self-fulfilling prophecies Attitude Central route to persuasion Peripheral route to persuasion Cognitive dissonance Self-perception theory
