would be no different than the animals. The theory also says that we acquire qualities/behaviors from others, or “archetypes” which could be parents, some movie character or a hero. Which is true because I think we try to be more like our ideals or whoever impresses us.

PSYC 221 – Introduction to Psychological Science Due date: 10/25/2017 Prof. Kristina Daniyal Khan Part III – Social Psychology (10 points total) After the many natural disasters of 2017, you have been inspired to become a volunteer for the Red Cross on the weekends. Your introductory psychology course has given you some ideas about principles of persuasion and altruism. 4. You are standing in a public place tasked to recruit volunteers for the Red Cross (e.g., in time, money, or blood donations). Provide 1 example of the foot-in-the-door technique, and 1 example of the door-in-the-face technique. Which one do you think would be more effective in this situation, and why? (3 points) Foot in the door: This could be done by first asking a person to sign a petition followed by a request for a donation while also offering them something such as a Red Cross wrist band or t-shirt. Door in the face: Asking people to volunteer any 4 days of the week and if they deny asking them to volunteer for an hour on whatever day it suited them. I think the DITF technique would be more effective since after asking a large request from someone, even an average request seems like a small one, or we don’t notice its significance and maybe because our mind is more caught up with the first request that we do not think carefully for the second request if done quick enough. 5. You are at the blood bank with a fellow volunteer, Maria, who has relatives who were directly affected by the hurricane in Puerto Rico. What social psychology concept can be used to explain her altruistic behavior? (2 points) I think there could be multiple factors such as following the social norms, society says you are supposed to help your close ones. It could be mimicry, that is, maybe her parents were volunteering so she joined them or also conformity due to the same reasons (her parents going).

    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.
