· Culture & the Self-Concept
Question 1: I want you to think about culture and self-concept. How has your culture affected your self-concept? Within that same culture you just described, are some people more individualistic than others? Are people more collectivistic in some situations than in others?

Question 2: What biblical principle(s) apply in the above scenario?

· Mob Scenes & Deindividuation
Question 1: Large diffuse crowds often turn to violence and property damage. One explanation of this phenomenon offered in the book is that in a crowd, people experience a sense of deindividuation—a sense that they are not accountable for their own actions—and it is this deindividuation that accounts for the violent turn of events. Yet many large diffuse crowds rarely if ever turn violent—like the crowds going to work in most large cities. What makes some crowds turn violent while others don’t? List several explanations for this discrepancy.

Question 2: What biblical principle(s) apply in the above scenario?

· Driving While Hostile
Question 1: In a survey cited in the journal New Scientist (Byrne, 2000), one-sixth of drivers who described themselves as generally being mild-mannered in temperament admitted to often feeling angry when behind the wheel of their vehicles.
In what ways does driving in traffic differ from walking on a crowded sidewalk? What social-psychological factors might account for automobiles provoking negative emotions?

Question 2: What biblical principle(s) apply in the above scenario?
