I think that Social Psychology is valid. The actions of others really does effect how other people act or what they do. In each of the experiments it was proven that other people acted how others influenced them to act.They did not make their own decisions, they just went with everyone elses decisions.
I think social psychology is valid because it can be backed up with evidence. My group proved social psychology to be true because we proved the aspect of conformity. Our example was conformity in the cheer section competition. We proved that social pressures can influence others to conform to an action.
No, I personally feel social psychology is a legitimate study. You can clearly see everyday that people are constantly conforming to the actions of others because they feel they need to. Peer pressure is a great example of social psychology in action. We see it everyday and know that it is a real occurrence. Therefore, social psychology is a valid study.
I choose valid. For the duration of this experiment, I have not seen a single sliver of smoke nor one mirror. Because of this, I feel social psychology is legit.
Being more serious, it's obvious that being in a group or having or not having certain knowledge can influence a large group. Example being, in Mark's project, those who knew what Mark was trying to do (Me) understood the point and lied in favor of Mrs Smith. However, those who did not know what he was trying to achieve talked about how awesome she was.
Another example is when Casie tried her experiment the first time. Her subjects (Isaac, Lee, Mark, Matt, etc) went from being serious about the project to being complete goof balls when Isaac started in. While this isn't what Casie was trying to do, it shows that being in a group can influence behavior.
Yes. It is valid, due to the multiple tests taken by each group. In my group, we tested memorization that was implied with influential comments; our comments affected the answers of the test subjects. In another test, our friends tested the conformity of individuals in public by documenting the actions made by students at a basketball game. Each test proved that individuals will follow then actions of others when influenced too.
