Attitudes and Persuasion  - 
 
 
Because "It’s a whole lot easier to hate on some down-on-his-luck human than it is to say ‘No More’ to the guys who’ve been held up as the paragons of virtue," who aren't. Because they are afraid of ending up in the same situation. Because they confuse circumstance with character. Because they buy every stereotype the media sells.

For the past few weeks we have been thinking about criticism. We noted that one reason that criticism is hard to bear for many of us is because of the way many people often provide criticism. Beca…

"It’s not so much that we need conformity and therefore seek it out, no, it’s that we’re driven to it by the very nature of our communal lives. This is not necessarily a bad situation. Structures for determining truth, the means of contemplating ethical behavior, customs, etc. are all part of what it is to live as human beings.”

The meaning of Social Psychology - https://goo.gl/DrCL7V

Attitudes and Persuasion  - 
 
"A mob is any group of people holding to a particular belief or set of beliefs, with the primary purpose being abject support of said belief with a demand for purity. This support may masquerade at times under the guise of rational inquiry, with questions often in the form of conspiracy building, but it is the purity standard that makes it into a mob-mentality. The belief cannot be questioned and stands as the means to differentiate the ‘true’ from the ‘false’ believers."

Nobody holds to a belief that they knowingly acknowledge is wrong or inaccurate. There is an emotional and identity-defining weight attached to each belief. For every incremental increase in resour…

Prosocial Behaviour  - 
 

American sociologist Leon Festinger was one of the first to study this, and write about it in his theory of Social Comparison. This theory says that we calculate our own worth based on how we stack up against others. He believed that this desire to compare is a biological urge in us that is as strong as thirst and hunger. “There exists, in the human organism, a drive to evaluate his opinions and abilities,” wrote Festinger in 1954.

They also feel superior to others and may boost their egos by implying others are inferior. Narcissism can lead to poor decisions in social interactions (e.g., business), but the mechanism …

There are a lot of people who complain that even after setting goals and creating my plan of action I’m not able to accomplish my goals. Though I have made plans but I don’t really apply them. Maybe it’s because of laziness that I procrastinate. Reasons for not applying plans People do not ap ..
