Question description


According to Feenstra (2013):
“Social psychologists investigate how people
view themselves and others, how they interact with and influence others, and how
people act when part of a group. Given the amount of time spent thinking about
and interacting with other  people, it follows that much of our lives are spent
with the subject matter of social psychology.”(p.xix)


This is a
formal research paper and must be eight to ten pages in length.  Imagine that
this paper will be used as a reference for individuals who are completely
