Question description

Part 1

Attitude and Behavior

Reflect on the relationship between personal attitudes and resulting behaviors, using the Theory of Planned Behavior, Cognitive Dissonance Theory, and Self-Perception Theory as your references. If someone has a negative attitude toward a particular individual or group, for example, what are the potential implications of their behavior toward that individual or group? How do implicit and explicit attitudes differ?

Go to the Project Implicit website and take the Implicit Association Test (https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/).  Choose any test within the demonstration category.  After retrieving the results of your test, share them with your classmates and consider their accuracy. Were you surprised by your results? Do they accurately portray your attitude toward the group? Do you think these types of tests are reliable in measuring prejudice? Please explain your answer. 

Part 2

Attributions
 
Examine the role of attributions in our social world. What are attributions, and how do we use them in our daily lives? Discuss the differences between internal and external attributions and describe the fundamental attribution error.  For example, what would be the explanatory style of a person who makes internal, stable, and global attributions for positive things and external, unstable, and specific attributions for negative things? Also consider the individual who does the opposite; what does this behavior tell us about the person?
