EXAM: Chapters 1 - 5 - yes read the articles that are posted Why do we fail to acknowledge the role of the situation? Gilbert and Malone (1995) - Social perception is a two-step process - involves both automatic and controlled processes - automatic: without intention, not deliberate, almost impossible to interfere with them, ex. frequency information of a voice - not perfect at situational inferences because they can be influenced by many things going on - controlled processes are heavily influenced by cognitive resources -situational information explains his behavior which revises the dispositional information you thought before. - you will still think he is rude because the last step is effortful (controlled) and situational - situational information will never completely undo the dispositional inferences that you make Attributions and Reactions - man is rude to his colleagues (dispositional attribution); chances are we wont like this person which will impact whether or not the person will be part of your life or how you behave in relation to this person. (story ends) - if we attribute their behavior to the fact that he was given an unfair evaluation we may think differently. maybe have a sympathetic reaction - attributions have to do with general perception as well as the feelings we have towards this individual as well as the behaviors we act to this person - lets say these two people are in a relationship: - negative behavior: he hit me again last night - dispositional attribution: he is an angry person and probably wont change - situation attribution: he was tired, I should not have annoyed him - these attributions will have different results depending on how she acts - sympathetic reaction: its not his fault I will stay - women in abusive relationships do everything they can to not make dispositional attributions and instead make situational attributes for excuses to stay in the relationship - if they make a dispositional attribution they will be motivated to leave but they are afraid to leave so they do everything they can to avoid it - why are they afraid?

    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.
