Social Psychology examines how they color the breadth of our experiences with other people. How quickly do we judge others, and do we even know we do that? How do we judge others differently than ourselves? Why do we behave differently in groups? What makes a good person conform to bad behaviors? What makes us act compassionately? This course then ends in a way that ties it all together: What are the means of improving our social relationships, and what really makes us happy?
