DSE212 – week 17 – Perceiving and understanding the social world

I’m currently a week behind what with the philosophy exam last week, but the exam means that I have now dropped back down to part time studenting so I can catch up on a lost week much more easily.

This week was a look at social psychology and look at various biases that result from using schema, and issues with attribution of causes to effects such as fundamental attribution errors, the actor/observer effect and self-serving bias, all of which means that our judgement isn’t as rational as we might think it is.

Good stuff, week 18 tomorrow.
