By definition, social psychology is the scientific study of how people's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are influenced by the actual, imagined, or implied presence of others.
I chose this topic because I am a strong believer in the human brain and the longing idea that you control your body, thoughts and actions. Also, I agree that every persons brain is different and responds to situations differently.
If I receive a D on my Spanish test and flip out, things are most likely going to head down hill from there. I will be angry at myself the rest of the day, causing my anger to affect my friends, family, etc. On the other hand, I receive my test grade and immediately begin looking over my mistakes. I stay after class to ask the teacher how to fix the questions that I got wrong so that I can learn from the mistakes I made. The rest of the day I keep a positive attitude going so that my friends, family, etc. do not get affected by me in a negative way.
Once a person begins to frown, the only way to make them smile forever is to acknowledge the fact that it is possible to be happy and smile all the time. I'm not saying that when someone hears that their grandmother died they should remain happy. I am saying that for a few minutes they should acknowledge the fact that she is gone, in a happier place, never coming back, but always spiritually here. Then live life to the fullest and understand what that close person did for you to be where you are today and once again, prove the world you can learn and move on instead of wallow around in your sorrows.
I believe that people are influenced by their environments. But YOU do have the final say in your actions no matter who, what, when, where and why. I feel as though each and every person should live everyday with a smile on their face instead of a frown. Don't worry, be happy.
