I used to be a bad listener but this is not the case anymore. Now I focus on listening to people more and more, and this change has been a positive one for me, where my analysis seems to be comprehensive from all angles and I take into perspective a balanced opinion which is offered to others. Do you believe that you are free of prejudice? After reading this chapter (Social Psychology), which of the many factors that cause prejudice do you think is most important to change? I am generally free of prejudice. I do not like to segregate people and ideas merely on the premise of being ‘different’. For changing, it is important that one comprehends the true essence of prejudice in the manner of empathy as well as sympathy for others. This will essentially be the agent of difference between the people and offer them a pathway to move ahead with life and adapt to change nonetheless.Have you ever done something in a group that you would not have done if you were alone? What happened? How did you feel? What have you learned from this chapter (Social Psychology) that might help you avoid this behavior in the future? I once smoked in a group which is one aspect of my personality that I would have never done on my own and in my private space. Indeed this smoking act was because of peer pressure and I fell for that (Carpenter & Huffman, 2009). I felt bad afterward that I should not have committed to this act of smoking because of the insistence of my friends who were present in that group. I have learned from the chapter that one needs to take into perspective a number of salient pointers before deciding which course of action is the best for him in the long run.
