Ten Interesting Things About Human Behavior is a short, lighthearted look at 10 things human beings do, why we do them, and their significance in our everyday lives. How do we resolve psychological conflict that occurs when our behavior violates our attitudes? Why are we so quick to blame others for their behavior while offering excuses for our own? What should we make of the talking heads on cable TV who argue about the cause of TV violence on children's behavior - whose explanation is correct? Why are reality TV shows, some of which portray contestants as pathetic and dysfunctional, so popular?

Questions like these usually provoke different answers from different people, each of whom may attribute his or her answers to "common sense." One person argues that "of course children mimic violence they see on TV - my kids do" while another attributes it to "poor parenting - because my kids don't." Which is it, and why?

Research psychologists try to answer these questions as best we can. This book is a brief look at the answers to 10 aspects of human behavior - answers derived from controlled behavioral research that is designed to test various theories about behavior. Certainly, there is more to human behavior than the 10 things I chose for this short book. And there are hundreds of primary sources and research reports that describe the research findings in more depth. They're out there if you'd like to read more.

But for those who are new to the field of Experimental Psychology, 10 Things may pique your interest in learning more about the subject. And for those "armchair psychologists" out there who'd like a quick read about the most fascinating creatures on the planet - human beings - I think you'll like it, too.

Platitüden. Vielleicht hilfreicht, wenn man in einem Kaspar-Hauser-Szenario aufgewachsen ist, aber an sonsten nicht gerade viel Inhalt - und damit meine ich nicht die Kürze des Gesamtmachwerks.

4.0 von 5 Sternen interesting quick read 18. Februar 2012
Von Mei - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book has only 405 locations, so it takes no more than half an hour or so to read. There are 10 chapters in this book, all chapters are about human behouviour. There are examples of behaviour in each chapter that you will recognise from your own life, making this book more appealing than a book with just the theory.

A few examples of the subjects:
-chapter 1 explains how changing your behaviour can change your attitude. This chapter explaines that when your behaviour and your believes don't match, your brain finds a solution, namely: changing your attitude.
-chapter 2 clarifies that it's normal for people to be inconsistent
-chapter 5 makes clear how tabloids and reality shows can make us feel better about ourselves
-chapter 8 shows us how we use double-standards when we judge ourselves relative to others
-chapter 9 explains how why airtravel brings out weird and rude behaviour.

There are 10 chapters in total in this book, so there are more subjects in this book than the ones I mentioned above. There is a extensive list of references at the end of the book. This book explains some human behaviour in a understandable and lively way. This book is very short though, and I would have liked it to be much longer. This book is a easy and fun read that will entertain and teach you about human behaviour at the same time. Recommended for everyone.

4.0 von 5 Sternen So that is why... 30. März 2012
Von Rebecca of Amazon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Suzanne Davis has created a small book of interesting facts about human behavior. You don't need to be a psychologist to understand this book. It is very simple and explains various behaviors that are common in life. Some of the things discussed include: cognitive dissonance, false dilemmas, body language, downward social comparison and the actor-observer effect. After reading this book you will understand why people act so terribly at airports or why we feel a smug happiness when we see famous people failing in life. If you have thirty minutes this is well worth your time.

4.0 von 5 Sternen May be basic info but to a layman it was interesting 21. Februar 2013

I'm a writer so I got this to better understand what drives people and did find some interesting info. It's a short read which for me was a good thing. I hate books that go on and on about info you don't really need and pepper in here and there what you do need. This book got straight to the point with no fluff. I really enjoyed chapter 2 Human beings can be inconsistent and I may use that idea in a future story.

Davis has offered more theory and personal opinion in this book than actual scientific research based evidence. I am very disappointed that anyone would put together a book about Human Behavior without knowledge of, education on, or performing extensive research in the field on this subject. Davis claims in this book that people can't be read; however, we read people everywhere everyday. Why does the guy on the corner make you feel uneasy, without ever speaking a word? How do you know your friend is sad just by the way the look? How are you able to tell you are being lied to by someone you know? It's not coincidence, it's body language we as humans learn to read.

Ten Interesting Things about Human Behavior
By Suzanne L. Davis, PHD
A book review by Ginger Dawn Harman

Ten Interesting Things about Human Behavior by Suzanne L. Davis, offers a straightforward approach to discover various beneficial facts about human behavior. With insight, humor, and an honest approach Dr. Davis specifically focuses on social interaction. This free e-book provided a quick leisurely read without a lot of overboard answers to change behavior. I found this enriching and it gives the reader an opportunity to choose one's own outcome.

The book begins with how one's attitude is determined by changing behavior. Aspects of cognitive dissonance are intertwined with gun ownership and covers subjects as diverse as dieting. How our behavior can be at odds with our beliefs, and how it is that behavior can cause a change in our attitude is examined by Dr. Davis. The author goes into further detail that we can learn to like or become more comfortable with an action or task by just performing the task.

I also like how Dr. Davis refers to social psychology as "psychological Science." I agree with the author that there is so much more to the field of psychology than treating mental illness. With psychological science or research as a main theme, the author conveys the importance of observations and influences of our everyday behavior. For example, when the author was a psychology professor her research involved assessing reactions to child witnesses. This outcome revealed that participants rate their own ability to be better than average but rated other people's ability at or below average. We attribute this behavior to internal and external factors along with the "actor-observer effect."

My favorite chapter was about airline travel and how it brings out the worst of human behavior. Those passengers who "clot" in front of the boarding line, unwanted touching, spillover, armrest theft, and those who recline with the greatest swoop that has resulted in many broken laptops are full of wit and humor. Furthermore, how many times have you witnessed the airline passenger who has "amnesia and forgets that he or she needs to stay seated during taxi, turbulence, or the beverage service?" The author was on target with that seemly nice people become de-individualized as they become part of a crowd. Dr. Davis continues to state that this is when we psychologically become "part of the crowd."

My favorite quote from the book is, "Rarely is there one and only one cause of a behavior. Most behavior is caused by several factors interacting together simultaneously." The science of Social psychology is important. Too often a "false dilemma" is created when in truth there is so much more to the story. Much like a book, we can focus on the title, book cover, word choice, or even plot. It is a shame that we often overlook the whole. This book examines the whole aspect of human behavior. Dr. Davis is concise, explains "what good knows this", and then gives the reader ways to draw upon their own ability. I recommend Ten Interesting Things about Human Behavior by, Suzanne L. Davis. I look forward to her insightful observations and her stories about Psychology.
