For this 3 point make up, I will be focusing a few different sections that we have gone over throughout the semester. Seeing as I couldn't come up with a particular way to unite all three sections in a smooth and impressive blog, I will instead be writing about a part I found most memorable from each section. The three sections are biological methods, sensation and perception, and social psychology.
The main part that stood out to me in the BIO section was the entirety of the nature vs nurture debate. I find it fascinating how both aspects of life can play a vital role in an individual's life. It is also quite interesting that there is still so much more to learn. Nobody knows for sure how both the way someone was raised, as well as their genes, truly affects them. Perhaps it will always remain a mystery, only time can tell. I found the illusions in the S&P section to be very entertaining. Our brains are always trying to make sense of our surroundings, often without out us even realizing it. This is very noticeable in the Necker Cube Illusion. The image is a bistable figure and our brains do the best they can to make sense of what is going. However, there are two possibilities for the position of the cube, and when we are attempting to decided what position it is in, it can often instantly change into the other one! The last section is SOC. The most interesting and (pardon the pun) shocking topic in this section was the Milgram experiment. It was almost scary seeing how willing a person is to obey orders just because they are coming from an authority figure. The fact that people would be willing to essentially kill someone just because a guy in a lab coat told them too, was quite startling.
