Advice sometimes helps you

Social Psychology

The scientific discipline that attempts to understand, and explain how thoughts feelings, and behavior of individuals are influenced by the actual imagined. Or implied presence of others.


The total lifestyle of people including the ideas symbols preferences, and material objects that they are in life. A diverse culture opens the minds of individuals so think about your own upbringing. Do different cultural ideologies to influence your own view of the world.


A philosophy of life stressing the priority of individual needs over group needs, a preference for loosely knit social relationships, and a desire to be relatively autonomous of others' influence.

The union is only perfect when all the individuals are isolated.

Human beings draw close to one another by their common nature, but habits and customs separate them or keep them apart.


A philosophy of life stressing the priority of group needs over individual needs a preference for tightly knit social relationships, and a willingness to submit to the influence of one's group.

An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns, to the broader concerns of all humanity.

Basic Research

Research designed to increase knowledge about social behavior.

Applied Research

Research designed to increase the understanding of and solutions to real-world problems by using current social psychological knowledge. There is nothing as practical as a good theory.


Specific propositions or expectations about the nature of things derived from a theory.

Critical Thinking

Prior to conducting research what precautions,:

Do you think social psychologists should take to ensure that the people who participate in their research will not be harmed?

Should social psychologists be allowed to study people without their consent?

Science has to be understood in its broadest sense as a method for comprehending the observable reality and not merely as an instrument for acquiring specialized knowledge. Observation, not old age, brings wisdom.

Correlation Studies

Research designed to examine the nature of the relationship between two or more naturally occurring variables.

Experimental Methods

Research designed to examine cause-effect relationships between variables.


An accomplice of an experimental whom research participants assume is a fellow participant or bystander.

Informed Consent

A procedure by which people freely choose to participate in a study only after they are told about the activities they will perform.

Critical Thinking

If you were a member of your college institutional review board and a research proposal similar to the Mil-gram obedience study was submitted for approval, what questions would you ask to determine its risk/benefit ratio?

Based on your assessment would you approve the study?

The self is the honey of all beings, and all beings are the honey of this Self. Nothing is greater than one's self. There are three things extremely hard, steel a diamond and to know one's self.

Know Yourself?

If you had known yourself you would run away!

The one self-knowledge worth having is to know one's own mind. He who knows others is clever; He who knows himself has discernment. It is not enough to understand who we ought to be unless, we know what we are, and we do not understand what we are unless we know what we ought to be.

Critical Thinking

Spend a few minutes considering how self-regulation failure contributes to domestic violence.

According to the strength model of self-regulation when would a parent or a spouse be most likely to harm someone due to losing control of their emotions?

What you think of yourself is much more important than what others think of you. Self-esteem and self-concept have specific odors, they can be smelled

A race of people is like an individual man, until it uses its own talent, takes pride in its own history, expresses its own culture, affirm its own self-hood, and it can never fulfill itself.

One cannot be ''An Indian'' One is a Comanche, a Oneida, a Hopi.

You progress as communities, not as individuals. One wants to maintain themselves as communities according to the group identity not just as mere individuals or as amorphous ''Indians''

Critical Thinking

Does your ethnic heritage have relevance to who you are?

If so at what stage are you in Phinney's model?

Is this an accurate portrayal of your own ethnic identity development?

Are there aspects of the model that do not correspond to your own personal experiences?

Born into the skin of yellow women we are born into the armor of warriors. All things being equal, you root for your own sex, your own culture, your own locality. Whatever you root for represents you.

When he or she wins you win too. Our self-esteem will often be threatened when we compare ourselves with those superior to us on some task.

The world is a stage or a platform but most of you are unrehearsed. Humility is something you always prided yourself on. It is not about if you really cried it’s whether the audience thinks you are crying. You know about a person who deeply interests you more than you can be told.

A look, a gesture, an act, which to everybody else is insignificant tells you more about that one than words can. Labels are devices for saying, talkative persons, the trouble of thinking.

Oh well, we say with a knowing lilt in our voice that's a man for you, or that is the just the way women are. We accept as a cosmic joke, the separate ways of men and women their different levels of foolishness. If you didn't have birthdays you wouldn't be YOU.

If you had never been born well then what would you be?

You might be a fish in a pond or a toad in a tree!

A man never discloses his own character so clearly as when he describes another. When you look for the bad in mankind expecting to find it you surely will.

Critical Thinking

Can you think of situations in your own life where the false consensus effect contributed to misunderstandings and conflicts between you and other people, such as your parents or your friends?

How about instances in which it actually fostered smooth interactions?

Imaginations which people have of one another are the solid facts of society. If three people say you are an ass, put on a bridle. Not everyone's life is what they make it.

Some people's life is what other people make it.The degree of a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting attitudes they can bring to bear on the same topic.

Self-knowledge is best learned not by contemplation but action.Knowledge is happiness because to have the knowledge, broad deep knowledge is to know true ends from false and lofty things from low.

One can only face in others what one can face in oneself.Without the doubt it is a delightful harmony when doing and saying go together.If you want to know the taste of a pear you must change the pear by eating it yourself.

Advice is not always taken but take heed to what is mentioned.

Simple Advice

What have your learned from morals?

      Great post Earl! Another tip for flights out of Mexico. I have to go back to the States in September. I first lokeod at flights from Guatemala City to San Diego or LAX as I'm currently in Antigua, Guatemala. I found some flights but I wanted to see if I could find cheaper alternatives. I also began researching all the airports in Mexico. I ended up finding a 1 way flight for $125 USD from Toluca, which is very close to Mexico City, to Tijuana. From Tijuana, Volaris Airlines offers a shuttle service from the airport to downtown San Diego almost hourly for $20. So I've substantially lowered my flight cost and I get to spend another 10 days in Mexico like I wanted. It does pay to get creative! jRo p.s. Volaris also offers unlimited changes to your flight for only $12. For me this is great as sometimes I end up wanting more or less time where I am at.

      DDE, This was very intriguing and deep thinking.

      This one spoke to me:

      "No passion so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning as fear."

      This one I find so true in my own life.
