What is Social Psychology?
Social psychology is the scientific study of how people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are influenced by the presence of others. It examines the ways in which social interactions, relationships, and group dynamics shape individual behavior and cognition. Social psychologists explore a wide range of topics, including social influence, attitudes, stereotypes, prejudice, intergroup relations, interpersonal attraction, and group decision-making. They use a variety of research methods, including experiments, surveys, and observational studies, to gain a better understanding of these phenomena. Social psychology has applications in many areas, including education, business, healthcare, and public policy, and has contributed to our understanding of human behavior in a wide range of social contexts.
