Please answer 1 out of 4 questions:
1. Critically evaluate research on the correspondence bias.
2. “The optimism bias stands guard. It’s in charge of keeping our minds at ease and our
bodies healthy. It moves us forward, rather than to the nearest high-rise rooftop.”
(Sharot, 2012). Drawing on both social psychological and social cognitive
neuroscience research, discuss the evidence for the view that we have an
unrealistically optimistic view of ourselves, and also comment on the degree to
which such a positive self-view makes for a better life.
3. “The IAT is … a powerful predictor of how we act in certain kinds of spontaneous
situations.” (Gladwell, 2005). Based on your knowledge of the implicit stereotyping
literature, how well do you think the IAT predicts overt discriminatory behaviour?
4. In what ways could social psychological research on attitude change benefit
government initiatives to encourage young people to develop more healthy
attitudes towards alcohol consumption? Use empirical examples to illustrate and
support your answer.
