Social cognition is about perceiving others and how we process the people and the world around us. 

  • How do people categorize things and people as either familiar and safe or unfamiliar and possibly dangerous? 
  • Why do people categorize? 
  • Can you escape categorization? 
  • How does this impact us and how we navigate the world? 
  • If we cannot escape categorization, can we ever eliminate prejudice? 

Think about your current work situation—how there is certain work that is handled by individuals and work that is handled by teams. 

  • When should we use groups to solve problems versus having an individual complete the work? 
  • Discuss how your answer aligns with the theories and insights from the textbook.
