Question description

Imagine that our country is under threat of imminent nuclear attack. You must make the important decision of who to let into the nearest fall-out shelter. There are 12 people vying to get in, but you can choose only five. Your choices include:

  • a 40-yr-old violinist who is a suspected narcotics pusher
  • a 60-yr-old architect
  • a 26-yr-old lawyer who will only go in if he can bring his wife
  • the lawyer's 24-yr-old wife who has just gotten out of a mental hospital
  • a 70-yr-old rabbi
  • a 34-yr-old retired prostitute who was so successful that she has been living on her annuities for five years
  • a 12-yr-old girl with a below-average IQ
  • a male high school student who needs a wheelchair to get around
  • a 20-yr-old gang member
  • a 23-yr-old female Catholic graduate student who speaks publicly on the virtues of chastity
  • a 28-yr-old male physicist who will only come into the shelter if he can bring his gun
  • a 19-yr. old college student who has just come out of the closet

Which five do you choose?

Write an essay describing how your fall-out shelter choices illustrated at least four of the social psychology concepts mentioned earlier. This essay should include a clear definition of each concept and then an example of how it appears in your decision.
