By applying the Social Judgement Theory, I can analyze just what was going on with our issue. Both my and the older woman’s Latitude of Rejection were so large that our Latitude of Acceptance was very small. She was for dairy farms/ factories. I wasn’t for dairy factories. My Latitude of Acceptance had more room because I am okay with dairy farms.
People who tend to consider other people’s feelings are more resistant to desensitization (Scharrer, 2008, pg. 302). Bushman also found in his study that people would be less likely to helps others in need due to a consequence of a physiological desensitization (Bushman, 2009, pg. 273). Bushman’s study revealed that
It explains criminal careers in terms of destructive social interaction and stigma-producing encounters (Brown, Esbensen, & Geis, 2010). Social reaction theory explains why people choose criminal careers because of labeling. Negative labels have enduring effects in a person’s social interactions and self-image. Social reaction is concerned with how self-identity and behavior of people can be determined or influenced by the terms that are used to describe or classify them and is associated with the idea of a self-fulfilling prophecy and stereotyping (Brown, Esbensen, & Geis, 2010). It distinguishes between primary deviance and secondary deviance.
According to Dr. Poornima Kumar of Aberdeen University, “Social rejection is one of the strongest proximal risk factors for depression and there are indications that rejection prospectively predicts depression.” (Kumar 1049) However, not everyone who is socially rejected goes to extreme lengths in combating their abuse, such as in school shooting events. Those events require a particular combination of factors according to Suet-Ling Pong, professor of sociology at Penn. State University; “First, the shooter…is subject to social exclusion, bullying, and teasing. Second, the shooter must suffer from psychological problems such as depression…third, the shooter must believe that unleashing the attack [on peers] will achieve his [or her] goals of… sending a public message. Fourth, schools and their communities must fail to identify troubled teens before their problems become extreme.
The disappointment made blind people refuse to accept a different sight although that is the reality. Also, the reason of rejection is why a part of people are not willing to open their eyes. Maybe one day, a repulsive truth arise from surroundings. Dillard shows how the different sights may affect the way how we currently live. On the other side, in “A List of Nothing in Particular,” Heat-Moon discovered many animals and plants from the desert.
(2004) stated that students who have deficits in social skills often experience low self-esteem, loneliness, and peer rejection. Also, students who have been rejected by their peers will change the way they interact in social situations after that rejection almost immediately (Coie, 2004).
Feedback is a crucial component in regret theory, since without explicit feedback on forgone outcomes, a decision maker cannot compare what is with what would have been (Zeelnberg). Regret is a subjective emotion, however, its powerful influence can be objectively illustrated by borrowing evidence from the field of behavioral economics. In a recent
In addition, avoiding those social situations (i.e. leaving in the middle) reduces my anxiety, which positively reinforces the avoidance behavior. Safety behaviors. Safety behaviors have been suggested as a reason why exposure to social situations doesn’t relieve social anxiety in those with social phobia (citation). In my case, possible safety behaviors include 1) pretending that I’m not really interested in interacting with others, as well as 2) not answer questions/voicing my opinion in many situations for fear that I will be ridiculed.
However, I assumed that he would not have negative reactions because I had told him about what hypotheses would be before. I thought his attitude would have been cooperative as expected. The first thought I had when reading his feedbacks was that he was using rationality to evaluate his presenting issue. Maybe he did not want to show too much emotions. However, when I read his feedbacks more carefully and tried to interpret their meanings, some new assumptions
In layman terms, the sensory receptors “gets used to” the stimulus and stops significantly reacting to that particular constant stimuli. Aside from the constancy in the sensory input, any changes in incoming stimuli, for example, a loud crash in prolonged silence, or a flash of lightning in the dark night, would stand out. In other words, sensory adaptation keeps people tuned in to the changes rather than the constants in their sensory input (Weiten, W., 2002). An example would be enjoying natural hot springs. The first step in the hot spring water would feel like a scald, and
