Social thinking describes how humans view their environment, including other people and their behaviors. Many variables, such as culture and personality, factor into the beliefs and attitudes we develop, which also shape the way we interact with one another. To interact with others, we need to interpret different aspects of a situation, including our perceptions of ourselves, the behaviors of those we observe, and the environment. The content in this course covers processes that contribute to prejudice, stigma and ethnocentrism, and processes related to stereotypes. It also covers our attitudes about others and how those attitudes develop, including how perceptions of culture and environment affect attributions of behavior.
I feel that I had taken the same course somewhere a long time ago. The material seems familiar to me. I am impressed with how easily I can relate to it. Sincerely, Ronald K. Marshall
