Review Question: We have covered quite a few different topics this semester regarding cognitive social psychology. I want you to imagine that you are explaining to a friend/family member/stranger you met on the street about social cognition in general, a specific theory, and an example for this person. For this prompt, please answer the following: (1) What is cognitive social psychology, (2) why do we study it, and (3) an example to help explain why this approach adds something to our understanding of ourselves that is unique to this approach. This response will need to be at least 150 words to get full credit.
