Zimbardo, Philip; Kanopy (Firm)
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Dr. Philip Zimbardo has spent his career in social psychology"”the study of human nature and how we're influenced by others and by social rules internalized in childhood. His research shows how we tend to be completely unaware of these influences, and often choose to act in irrational ways that can cause harm to ourselves or others. Narrated by Dr. Zimbardo, this fascinating program offers insights into the underlying forces driving individual and group behavior. You'll observe unsuspecting human subjects in twenty situations that test the boundaries of individualism and group mentality. Watch them all or choose the scenes that best fit your training goals. Watch examples of how we judge others: "¢ Weighted heavily by first impressions "¢ Based on their personal appearance "¢ Through identification with groups Or how social situations drive behavior: "¢ When we want to be accepted and fit in "¢ Passively deferring to a "group norm" "¢ Through obedience to authority
