  1. Petra  finds out that her classmate, Julie, thinks that she is really cool.  This makes Petra like Julie more than she did before. What does research  suggest about this kind of "reciprocity of liking?" 
  2. Tom's  new girlfriend, Elise, has a habit of biting her nails. This did not  bother Tom when he first met her, but it is beginning to annoy him more  and more with each passing day. Tom is starting to think that this is a  sign that Elise might just not be the right person for him. What would a  social psychologist say? 
  3. Suppose  that Anabelle and Roger are two lonely people. Anabelle seeks to stave  off loneliness by forming "relationships" with her favorite celebrities  (reading about their lives in Usmagazine, watching updates about them on E! Entertainment,  etc.), while Roger seeks to dissipate his loneliness by spending time  with his dog Fluff (buying his dog presents, taking his dog for long  walks, and talking to his dog each night about his day). What does  research suggest about the effectiveness of these techniques? 
  4. Moira  and Abdul fell in “love at first sight” a few days ago. They think  about each other constantly and the sexual tension between them runs  high. Consequently, they spend most of their time having sex and little  time talking. Discuss their intimacy level according to Sternberg’s  theory? 
  5. Andre  really believes in himself and doesn’t suffer much in the way of social  anxiety. Yet he has a hard time trusting his girlfriend (even though  she has given him no reason for this). His girlfriend feels frustrated  with the relationship, because Andre seems so aloof and far away.  According to attachment theory, what style of attachment does Andre  have? 
  6. Suppose  that Hillary has somewhat high self-esteem, while her sister Lola has  somewhat low self-esteem. Meanwhile, their cousin Nancy has  extraordinarily high self-esteem—to the point of being completely  narcissistic. And another cousin of theirs, Hattie, has extraordinarily  low self-esteem, such that she is brimming with self-criticism and  self-hate. What does research suggest about the likelihood that Hillary,  Lola, Nancy, and Hattie will have successful long-term relationships? 
  7. Jennifer  is a student at UCLA. When asked to describe the average UCLA student,  she says it is almost impossible to do so because "there are so many  different kinds of people at UCLA; the diversity is really amazing." By  contrast, when asked to describe the average USC student, Jennifer says:  "That's easy; they're all almost exactly the same." What would social  psychologists say that Jennifer is displaying? 
  8. Suppose  that Madison has just begun dating Wayne. While at his house, she  notices some family photos on the coffee table. She notices that—even  though Wayne himself is not overweight—every other member of his family  is clearly obese. Somehow, this makes Wayne seem less attractive to  Madison. What does Madison’s attitude illustrate? 
  9. Let’s  assume that most high school students have “attitude” at one time or  another. Mr. Schmidt, a high school athletic director, is a very  prejudiced individual. He usually notices when the black students in  school have “attitude” and rarely notices when the white students show  “attitude.” Consequently, he continues to believe that black students  are disrespectful to authority.  How does Mr. Schmidt’s tendency to  focus on social information in a biased way support his prejudiced  belief? 
  10. Jonah  is really worried about playing the piano at his recital in front of  his girlfriend, who has expressed a desire to be at the recital. Jonah  keeps thinking about her instead of concentrating on playing his music.  Which of the three processes that influences social facilitation does  this scenario mostemphasize?
