Ever wondered how to get yourself out of the “you got me into this” tangle, or why the friendly boy scout just managed to sell you a bar of chocolate that you did not even want? Fascinated by how you and your friend could end up arguing about an event that both of you remember differently?

This course aims to imbue students with a heightened awareness of social influence tactics at play, what they are personally most susceptible to, and how to turn circumstances to their benefit. We will learn about general psychological theories of influencing human behavior, and explore their application to both personal life and organizational experience. Class materials will come from many fields in psychology that deal with how the social environment affects individual thought and action, including concepts from social psychology, clinical psychology, organizational psychology, and cognitive psychology. Throughout the course, students will be encouraged to apply these theories to their personal lives and to the organizations of which they are a part. It will culminate in an opportunity for everyone to try their hand at one or more of the social influence tactics learned in the course.

Class meets Sept. 16, 23, 30, Oct. 7, 14, 21, 28, Nov. 4, 11.
