RWP#3, Stage 1 Due 7/17: Social and Personality psychology
Real World Psychology: Psychology is all around us. I hope that as you learn more and more about the field that you start to recognize this and become more curious about why people act the way they do. You will be asked to observe 4 real world psychology examples, of you choosing, and then will find a peer-reviewed research article that is meant to answer your question. Each of these 4 assignments is worth 10% of your final grade and will roughly cover 4 different sections of the course materials
THIS DB is for RWP #3: Social and Personality psychology
You may work on this before the due date. You will upload everything onto the DB, in 2 stages. Both Stage 1 and 2 are due by the due date. You will need to get clearance from me (on the DB) for Stage 1 before moving to Stage 2. I will reply to you on the DB whether you’ve been cleared, then you can reply back to me with your Stage 2 response. Do not leave this until the last minute.
· Stage 1 (4 points). Describe a real world psychology example using the concepts we have talked about in each section of the course. Tell us why you think it is an important observation and what questions the observation leaves you with.
· Stage 2 (6 points). After you have clearance from me, find a peer-reviewed article that is related to your observation and outstanding question. You must find a peer-reviewed article, upload the PDF to your answer (1 point), give the APA citation of the article (1 point), and then describe the article’s findings (3 points), and explain how it relates to your observation/question (1 point).
Examples from other students:
Personality psychology is a very interesting topic. The real world psychology question that intrigues me, is “How does our childhood upbringing shape our personality?” I want to explore if the environment and the people I grew up with have any impact on my personality.
I would like the explore the topic of any links/similarities between social events and personality traits among the shooters of recent mass shootings. I could take a broad approach as there have been shootings at concerts, in malls, holiday events, etc. or narrow it to schools.
