We are social animals. Social Psychology illustrates how psychologists have produced a startling array of knowledge about how people act and react in social situations. Social behaviors are affected by thought and emotion, by our cultural heritage, by the groups with which we affiliate, and by our expectations of what is likely to happen when we deal with others.
