some comment[edit source]

Hello Teall, welcome aboard. About the video: I didn't laugh much - but I am not sure if I would have behaved otherwise when you wouldn't have said any comment to the video like "why people react so differently". You can try an experiment perhaps without giving a comment and making an analysis of the reactions ?

about the w:Bystander effect: I assume this can also be overcome with training. Most people didn't experience perhaps that situation and are confused also. The more you train them the more they can change their actions in the future perhaps. Would be interesting to find what kind of "training" might help (perhaps there are some reports?). ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) 12:00, 2 August 2008 (U

Bystander effect[edit source]

  • Hi Teall, you might find something about this via searching for "bystander effect" as a keyword. Why do we help/not help in different situations? And who is more likely to help? Have a search around for "bystander effect" and let us know what you find! We will cover this at least in an introductory way in the lecture on "Prosocial behaviour". We can also make a page here on Wikiversity called Bystander effect (red links haven't been created yet, but anyone can start the page) for more info about the phenomenon. -- Jtneill - Talk - c
    • Thank you James...i was keen to find out more about this interesting phenomenon that i chose it as my essay i have set up a page: 'bystander effect' which i will add to as i write my essay and find out more information --Teall McQueen 03:12, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
      • Congratulations on creating this page! You are the first student in the unit to create a new page on Wikiversity!! Just a tip - if you go to this page and click on "Watch" up the top you will then be able to keep track of any edits to it by visiting your "my watchlist" whenever you are logged in.

Re: Normative influence video[edit source]

Thanks for the video - it always is interesting to see such things live - than just "overreading" it. Then they get remembered better. ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) 10:57, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Sport and in/out groups[edit source]

Hey Teall, thanks for the comment. I agree with your point about winning being a reason for group affiliation. I have a South African friend who claims he didn’t care at all about the Olympics (where South Africa won only 1 medal) but come every Rugby World Cup he is quick to point out to me how much better “his” country is then “mine”. This applies to your point about how in arenas where we do not succeed we place little emphasis on claiming the teams as our own. Bryony 23:49, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Violent video games[edit source]

Hey Teall,

I was just reading your discussion on aggression and social learning theory. Certainly Bandura would say that violent video games would make a child more prone to violent acts however i found some research that was quite interesting. It was a followup study that looked at the effect that peer involvement would have on the bobo doll experiment. Kids went through the same procedure as Bandura's original experiment but they had a peer in the room who either encouraged or disapproved of violence. Aggression was greatly reduced when the confederate peer discouraged violence...poor old bo bo got a little break. So it seem to simplistic to say violent video games cause violence. There is obviously a complex interplay of social influences involved. Plus i think the amount of learning that occurs is dependent on the importance a child places on the model. Watching a parent bash up poor bo bo may have a much more lasting impact than watching a violent film. In terms of school shootings i think it has more to do with social isolation than learnt violence. --NikkiHiggins xoxooxxo

E-portfolio Feedback for Teall McQueen[edit source]

Hi Teall McQueen,

Thanks for participating in the social psychology unit. I have read your e-portfolio and have provided some feedback below. The marks will put be posted on WebCT 24 or 25 November. I will email the discussion list when they are available. Feel free to let me know if you have any comments, concerns, questions. I also welcome your feedback here.

Regularity/Continuity[edit source]

Very good coverage across all major lecture/reading topics and most tutorial topics. (DI)

Depth/Insightfulness[edit source]

Excellent depth of engagement demonstrated, with interesting reflections, links to useful videos and sites, and significant initiative taken to create probably the single most substantial page by a social psychology student in the main space: Bystander effect Smiley.svg. You've clearly come to grips with social psychology and its various complexities and nuances, with demonstrated application to your own life. You've also demonstrated an enthusiastic capacity to learn and an excellent knowledge of social psychology. (HD)

Overall/General/Other[edit source]

Thanks for the additional reflections at the end - I think some more Wikiversity "how to edit" info is a good idea.
