Social Psychology is a very broad subject but the definition that I believe describes it best is the scientific study of the way in which people's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are influenced by real or imagined presence by other people. There are many contributing factors and situations that support the theory of Social Psychology. I believe by understanding these contributing factors better we can learn to better lead our own lives rather than other outside influences leading our behaviors. The most prominent factors I found included the following: Social behavior, Social cognition and how we use it, Self concept and Image and its importance, Attitudes and how they effect our behavior, Groups and how size effects our behavior, Types of attraction and relationships, Prosocial behavior and how the previous knowledge of Social Psychology helps us in helping others. I believe that being aware of these influences, understanding and acknowledging consciously their influences on our behavior can better help us to understand the influence that others have on our daily actions.
