  • d. behaviourism and Freudian psychoanalysis.

e. behaviourism and cognitive psychology. How are social psychologists generally similar to behaviourists? They

  • a. both tend to favor experiments and the scientific method.

b. are both interested in the mind, thoughts, and emotions. c. are both originally rooted in psychoanalytic theory. d. are both interested in the unconscious mind. e. None of the above Social psychologists are generally similar to Freudian psychoanalysts in that they both a. are more interested in abnormal behavior than in normal behavior. b. tend to favor experiments and the scientific method. c. are primarily interested in external behaviors rather than the internal workings of the mind.

  • d. have an interest in thoughts and feelings as well as behaviors.

  • b. the group as a single unit... individual members within the group

c. how group are unique... how various groups are similar to one another d. how various groups are similar to one another... how groups are unique e. class... individual social status In recent years, __________ has emerged as an important subfield of social psychology that explores the ways in which people think about social situations. a. cognitive sociology

  • b. social cognition

c. cognitive psychology d. socionition social perception e. sociometry The key distinction between philosophy and psychology is the fact that psychology a. is concerned with observable phenomena (e.g., behaviors) rather than unobservable phenomena (e.g., thoughts). b. is concerned with unobservable phenomena (e.g., thoughts) rather than observable phenomena (e.g., behaviors).

  • c. primarily relies on the scientific method.

d. primarily relies on the case study method. e. is more relevant to everyday life. In social psychology, the "ABC triad" consists of a. attitudes, beliefs and commitments. b. ambiances, biology, and culture.

  • c. affects, behaviors and cognitions.

d. attributions, boundaries, and corrections. e. ambivalence, beingness, and consciousness Dr. Khanmohamed is conducting a research project with young children to examine the effect of exposure to different cultural groups on the development of empathy. The independent variable in this research is: a. young children

  • b. exposure to different cultural groups

c. empathy d. how empathy develops e. Dr. Khanmohamed Suppose that you conducted an experiment to test the effects of violence in TV shows on aggressiveness in children. The dependent variable in this study would be a. how violent the TV shows were b. how many hours of violent shows the children needed to watch before they became violent. c. whether or not the children should be exposed to violence.

  • d. how aggressive the children were.

e. TV Suppose that you are planning to conduct a study to look at the effect of pet ownership on empathy, but that you cannot find any good measures of empathy (all of the measures that you find seem to fall short of your understanding of what empathy is, or to miss the mark completely). Unless you can find a measure that you are satisfied with, your research may end up being low in a. internal validity. b. external validity. c. construct validity of the cause.

  • d. construct validity of the effect.

e. reliability If a researcher conducts an experiment in which the independent variable is poorly defined (i.e., has a poor operational definition), then the experiment can be said to have low a. internal validity. b. external validity.

  • c. construct validity of the cause.

d. construct validity of the effect. e. interpretative validity. When a researcher conducts an experiment and is fairly certain that changes in the independent variable caused changes in the dependent variable, that experiment is said to be high in a. construct validity. b. construct validity of the effect.

  • c. internal validity.

d. external validity. e. interpretative validity. Suppose that a cereal manufacturer tried out a new cereal box design for a few months, and—during the same time period—notices that its sales have tripled. One of the cereal executives, Mr. Correl, boasts that the new cereal box must have sparked the increase in sales. But another executive, Mr. Scien, points out that the increase could be due to the new advertising campaign that the company is using, or to new distribution practices that have taken hold, or to the fact that more and more people are eating cereal these days. That is, Mr. Scien suggests that the company's "test" of the new cereal box design is low in __________. a. operationality. b. generalizability.

  • c. internal validity.

d. external validity. e. interpretative validity. Can correlational studies or experiments ever be conducted outside of the laboratory? a. No, both of these types of studies are always performed in the lab. b. Correlational studies can be conducted inside the laboratory or out in the "real world," but experiments are always conducted in the lab. c. Correlational studies are always conducted in the "real world" (not the lab) and experiments are always conducted in the lab (not the "real world").

  • d. Both correlational studies and experiments can be performed in the lab or in the "real world;" when experiments are performed in the "real world" they are called field experiments.

e. Experiments are conducted in labs; Correlational studies are conducted in the field. If an experiment gets participants psychologically involved and engaged, but the setting does not resemble the real world, then the experiment would be said to be a. low in experimental realism and low in mundane realism. b. low in experimental realism and high in mundane realism.

  • c. high in experimental realism and low in mundane realism.

d. high in experimental realism and high in mundane realism. e. None of the above If a study is high in external validity, then a. the findings are likely to generalise to other people and other settings. b. the researcher can confidently conclude that there is a cause-and-effect relationship between the variables in the study. c. participants in the study are highly engaged and involved in the study.

  • d. the research situation physically resembles a real-world situation.

e. the findings are also likely to be high in internal validity.
