Putting The Psycho Into Social Psychology

| Regina, SK, Canada | Learning | July 2, 2014

(I am sitting in a psychology class. My professor, who has a vaguely European accent, is briefly covering the different fields of psychological study in a slideshow.)

Professor: “Next we have social psychology. It is the study of how people behave in groups.”

(The slide changes to show a group of neo-Nazis.)

Professor: “That’s what I do.”

(She points at the slide and glances briefly, almost moving on before realizing.)

Professor: “No! The social psychology! I’m not a Nazi!”

(Fortunately, we all believed her.)
