Social Psychology

Part 1

Regardless of our personal preferences, we all require some amount of social contact. However, the level of social contact and type of relationship we share with others vary significantly. Social psychologists tend to focus on the qualities and characteristics that make up long-lasting relationships. One of the most challenging characteristics in a close relationship is love.

  • Describe the four factors that result in an individual being attracted to another? Explain which of the four factors are the most significant and which of them is the least significant in initiating friendship and attraction.
  • Explain the definition and concept of passionate and companionate love and compare and contrast both types of love. In your opinion, is there more than just passionate and companionate love?

Justify your answers with appropriate reasoning and research from your text and course readings. Comment on the postings of at least two peers and provide an analysis of each peer’s postings while also suggesting specific additions or clarifications for improving the discussion question response.

Part 2

Depending on the circumstances, an individual is more or less likely to help others whom they are not acquainted with. In comparison altruism is helping others without conscious regard for one’s self-interests.

  • Explain why you would agree or disagree that helping others is purely based on circumstances of the event. Describe the most important factor motivating an individual to help others in need.
  • Explain how is it possible that individuals exhibit altruistic behavior without weighing the consequences of their actions. Do you agree or disagree that individuals expect to be rewarded in exchange of their help provided to others as discussed in the social-exchange theory?

Use both your textbook and outside resources (peer-reviewed articles, and other reputable sources) to complete this task. In text citations and APA references.
