SEMESTER FALL 2013
Social Psychology (PSY 403)
Assignment No.01
Due Date: December 03, 2013
Assignment Objectives:
By the end of this assignment, students will be able to:
· Analyze the impact of impression formation in real life.
· Apply the learned phenomenon into real life situations
Assignment:
“Person’s Perception”
We all form social judgments in our daily lives. In this regard, impression formation plays an
important role. Whenever, we meet with a new person, we form an immediate impression about
him/her on the basis of dressing, communication style, non-verbal clues and personality traits.
We make judgments on the basis of such kinds of information.
Dear students!
Here is an activity given below:
You are required to take an individual (teacher/friend/colleague) from your surroundings. It is
preferable to choose such an individual with whom you have spent a sufficient amount of time
(at least 2-3 years). In this regard, you have to follow these steps:
Task 01:
Make a list of traits/characteristics of the selected individual when you have seen him/her for the
first time. Discuss the primacy effects. (You must take any of the 5 traits of his/her personality.
You are required to report all those factors while creating impression about him/her such as
appearance, non-verbal clues, paralinguistic, facial expressions and personality traits and so on).
Task 02:
As compared to the first impact, did you change your opinion about that particular person after
spending a sufficient period of time? You have to discuss it in the context of recency effects.
Task 03:
How much impression formation is important and what role does it play in your life? Discuss
with real life examples.
