ABC triad

  • behavior- what people do
  • cognition- what people think
lay theories
  • theories people use in their everyday lives that reflect the core beliefs of a culture
  • folk theories
  • love of wisdom

research
  • take ideas that are assumed to be true and test them
  • reliance on the scientific method

theoretical perspective power of situational or momentary effects
stroop task words that spell out a color but are shaded a different color
priming
  • "spreading activation"
  • planting an idea in someone's mind
  • automatic

semantic priming
  • study of the meaning of words
  • phrases facilitate responses to other words
  • effects are relative

schema
  • cognition structures representing ideas in the mind
  • schema:mind :: neuron:brain
  • exist in both rational/conscious and automatic/associative mind
  • dynamic at first, stable and resistant to change once formed
types of schemata
  • concept
  • specific person
  • group- stereotypes
  • self- changes by situation
  • event
  • procedure

scripts
  • enduring cognitive structure summarizing commonalities
  • knowledge base

  5. experience-sampling
  6. simulation
  7. physiological measurement

surveys
  • questionnaire
  • time efficient
  • a lot of data
  • self-report biases
  • accuracy of behavior

observation
  • real world environment
  • no control
  • need good coding
  • difficult to achieve

meta-analysis quantitative literature review that combines the statistical results from all studies on a particular topic
field experiment manipulate an independent variable using the scientific method in a real world setting
experience sampling gather data on behavior as it happens in a journal
