Social psychology is the scientific study of how individuals perceive, influence, and relate to others through social interactions. Social psychology is the study of how individuals perceive, influence, and relate to others. It has also been described as the scientific study of social interactions. The social psychologist Gordon Allport defines the field as an attempt to understand and explain how the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of individuals are influenced by the actual, imagined, or implied presence of others.
We may be watching television, listening to the radio, or just recalling previous interactions. Social psychology includes the subfields of cognitive social psychology and social neuroscience. The field of social psychology has traditionally been described as a bridge between psychology and sociology. There are some important differences in the way that psychological social psychologists and sociological social psychologists approach the field of study.
Thus, two academic emphases have emerged. Psychology-focused social psychologists PSP are individual-centered, and sociology-focused social psychologists are more concerned with the impact of external factors on an individual. Social perception allows individuals to make judgments and form impressions about other people. These judgments are primarily based on observation, although pre-existing knowledge influences how observed information is interpreted. Social psychologists research the factors that lead people to behave in a given way in the presence of others, and look at the conditions under which certain behaviors and feelings occur.
This field is specifically concerned with the way feelings, thoughts, beliefs, intentions, and goals are constructed, and how such psychological factors, in turn, influence interactions with others. Social psychology attempts to understand the complex relationship between minds, groups, and behaviors in three general ways. First, it aims to describe how the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of individuals are influenced by the actual, imagined, or implied presence of others.
There is a strong interest in how perceptions and thoughts, as well as social cues, affect individual behavior in this area.
Second, social psychology attempts to describe the influence that individual perceptions and behaviors have on the behavior of groups. This includes research on areas such as group productivity and decision making. Third, social psychology explains the dynamics of groups as behavioral entities.
Social psychology uses strictly controlled experiments, correlational methods, and observational methods to study these factors. The most common approach is experimental research. In order to try to limit unwanted social influences, deception is often used.
One persistent theme in social psychology is the structure-agency debate. This is also referred to as the individual-holism debate. It involves questions about the nature of social behavior: for example, does social behavior ultimately stem from the individual, or is it largely a product of socialization, interaction, and greater social structures?
Structure is the recurrent patterns or arrangements that influence or limit the choices and opportunities available. The structure-versus-agency debate may be understood as an issue of socialization against autonomy in determining whether an individual acts as a free agent or in a manner dictated by social structure.
Introduction to Social Psychology and Social Perception Social psychology is the scientific study of how individuals perceive, influence, and relate to others through social interactions. Learning Objectives Define the goals, questions, and approaches of the field of social psychology. Key Takeaways Key Points The social psychologist Gordon Allport defines social psychology as an attempt to understand and explain how the thoughts, feelings, and behavior of individuals are influenced by the actual, imagined, or implied presence of others.
Social psychology is usually considered a subfield of psychology or sociology. Social psychologists research the factors that lead people to behave in a given way in the presence of others and the conditions under which certain behaviors and feelings occur. Some areas of research include attribution, perception, conformity, group dynamics, and interpersonal attraction.

Psychology as a field of scientific exploration remains relatively new; the first formal psychology course in the United States was initiated at Harvard University by William James in These and other researchers wanted to uncover how human perceptions — of themselves, of others, and of the world at large — influence behavior. As the field of psychology matured, researchers began to focus on specialized aspects of the mind and behavior. This gave rise to subcategories of psychology, including social psychology. Today, researchers and academics examine nearly every aspect of human existence through a psychological lens. The American Psychological Association APA lists 15 subfields of psychology, including clinical psychology, brain and cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, quantitative psychology, and more. Social psychology is one of the broadest and most complex subcategories because it is concerned with self-perception and the behavioral interplay among the individuals who make up society.
The breadth and range of contemporary social psychology theories reflects the diverse intellectual origins of the various perspectives and approaches. Early discussions of social psychology focused on these distinctive intellectual origins by highlighting the differences between psychological and sociological social psychology. This representation of the field has been critiqued for its perpetuation of artificial boundaries that overlook significant connections between the shared subject matter of sociology and psychology. While each perspective represents unique theoretical ideas, they also inform one another and serve to create a comprehensive understanding of individual interactions and how they impact on the groups to which we belong as well as the environments in which group interactions occur. All three perspectives share a focus on the individual and individual interactions as the explanatory factor for all aspects of social life, such as the creation of stable group structures and the formation of successful social movements. The three theoretical perspectives in social psychology, known more generally as cognitive and intrapersonal, symbolic interactionist, and structural, each represent different origins and intellectual affiliations and maintain a focus on different aspects of the individual and society.

In sociology, social interaction is a dynamic, changing sequence of social actions between individuals or groups. In sociology, social interaction is a dynamic sequence of social actions between individuals or groups who modify their actions and reactions due to actions by their interaction partner s. Social interactions can be differentiated into accidental, repeated, regular and regulated. A social interaction is a social exchange between two or more individuals.
Social norms are regarded as collective representations of acceptable group conduct as well as individual perceptions of particular group conduct. In the field of social psychology, the roles of norms are emphasized—which can guide behavior in a certain situation or environment as "mental representations of appropriate behavior". A message can target the former dimension by describing high levels of voter turnout in order to encourage more turnout.

Sociology , a social science that studies human societies, their interactions, and the processes that preserve and change them. It does this by examining the dynamics of constituent parts of societies such as institutions, communities , populations, and gender, racial, or age groups. Sociology also studies social status or stratification, social movements , and social change , as well as societal disorder in the form of crime, deviance , and revolution. Social life overwhelmingly regulates the behaviour of humans , largely because humans lack the instincts that guide most animal behaviour.

Задача дешифровщиков состояла в том, чтобы, изучив его, получить оригинальный, или так называемый открытый, текст. АНБ пригласило Беккера, потому что имелось подозрение, что оригинал был написан на мандаринском диалекте китайского языка, и ему предстояло переводить иероглифы по мере их дешифровки. В течение двух часов Беккер переводил бесконечный поток китайских иероглифов. Но каждый раз, когда он предлагал перевод, дешифровщики в отчаянии качали головами.
