Critical Observation

Identify an interesting behavior or series of events that you frequently observe in your workplace, family, or social life. Describe what you observe; identify the person or persons involved and the character of their relationship, the frequency of the behavior, and any preceding conditions that seem to be associated with the events. Describe the consequences, or what happens afterward. How could the study of social psychology help you understand what is happening? If you wanted to gather more information about what you are observing, would you study an individual or large groups of people? Which of the research methods would you use? Explain why it is important to be free of bias in your observations and the conclusions you draw about cause and effect, and identify any potential ethical dilemmas that could arise from your research.
