When students reflect on psychology, many of them consider behavioral analysis as the primary outcome. We’ve learned that “behavior” in a psychology context can also include thoughts, emotions and other cognition.

However, in Social Psychology, our focus is indeed on observable behavior.

There are so many interesting questions and quirks of humanity that can be investigated from a social psych perspective!

Task: Your task is to brainstorm interesting/shocking/confusing/amazing aspects of behavior and then formulate a driving question to guide your  research! You should engage in this process similar to the process you engage in to create your TOK presentation; beginning from a Real Life Situation.

Finally, you and your partner will then create a video that you’ll post to youtube or youku that answers your question!
