Simple Book with a Powerful Punch 17. November 2014
Von Margaret Mallard - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I don't know a lot about social psychology, but you certainly don't have to be an expert to understand the central themes in The Person and the Situation. The book posits that our decisions and understandings of the world are often influenced by our settings. In effect, it's impossible to decontextualize the "person" from their "situation." I think we often imagine ourselves to be these immutable people that react to certain catalysts in appropriate ways. But, more often than not, our decisions and concepts of the world are determined, in large part, by the situations we're in. I may make one decision in the comfort of my own home, but an entirely different one when faced with a similar dilemma at work. The book really takes a look at human behavior and the logic behind our actions and reactions, including why we sometimes have a difference of opinion on things that look objective on the surface.

While The Person and the Situation is really a research-based book, I wanted to find other examples of social psychology books. I came across 21 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy, which probably doesn't sound like a social psychology book. I do think it offers some basic and supremely helpful nuggets about how to make reasonable decisions and inferences in your daily life. Giving up certain views on people (including their personal view of you) has been valuable to attaining happiness for me. Happiness is, of course, a difficult emotion to come by for many people, but it all starts with changing the way the think. This concept walks hand-in-hand with The Person and the Situation. Changing the way you think is often all about getting yourself out of the "situation" and looking at things objectively.

One of the best parts about both books is the fact that they each are written in a clear, relatable prose that virtually anyone can wrap their heads around. I know a "research-based" social psychology book might not sound appealing to many, but let me assure you that it is a fascinating and understandable exploration of the human psyche.

Taking account of the importance of the situation 16. August 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a wonderful introduction to the importance of situational influences on our inferences and decisions. The coverage of examples is thorough and it is easy to see how each is relevent to the topic at hand. Written in a an imminently understandable and conversational style, this book is a pleasure to read. I particularly enjoyed the ways in which the authors demonstrated the types of faulty logic we all use when trying to use dispositional information to make predictions about the behaviour of ourselves and others. This book points out quite clearly that just because an approach appears to work in the real world, doesn't mean that the rational for using it is reasonable. An enjoyable and informative read!

Buy this Book! 6. Dezember 2007
Von Mark - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
As a 2nd year PhD student someone lent me this book so that I could acquaint myself with Social Psychology (which I had very little exposure to beforehand). I felt that I had a better grasp of social psychology after reading this book than I did after taking a year of PhD level courses. Ross & Nisbett effortlessly cover the foundational works of Social Psy in a way that is immediately accessible and compelling. This is one of two books that I recommend to incoming PhD students...

A very satisfying theoretical integration of social psychology research 28. Mai 2006
Von Laura Havstad - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Offered as "a slim guide ... to the heart and muscle" of the enterprise of social psychology, this volume provides the cummulative evidence of the field organized in terms of the basic principles it supports. This is an excellent introduction and review of the field of social psychology, its research and its applications. To really absorb the knowledge accumulated here into the functioning of our general culture would require a willingess by individuals, over and over again, to transcend normal ways of thinking in order to understand others, and especially differences with others, in a less self-centered manner than is usual.

Well structured ideas 30. Oktober 2003
Von Mark Twain - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is amply recommended for anyone questioning the individualistic stance of human behavior. The ideas are well structured and motivate discussion. Essential reading for cognitive and AI researchers!
Some quotes:
"People sometimes construe the same object differently because they view it from different angles, rather than because they are fundamentally different people."
"Indeed, when we are confronted with behavior that seems to suggest exceptional personal attributes of any kind we tell ourselves to pause and consider the situation. What were the details of the immediate context of behavior? How was the situation construed by the actor? And what was the broader social context or social system within which the actors were functioning? More pointedly, what objective situational features or subjective construals, or tension system considerations would make these seemingly exceptional actions less exceptional, and more congruent with what experience has taught us about the way ordinary people (ourselves included) generally behave?"
