Myers’ PSYCHOLOGY

Chapter 1 Thinking Critically with Psychological Science

The Need for Psychological Science

Psychologists, like all scientists, use the scientific method to construct theories that organize observations and imply testable hypotheses

The Need for Psychological Science Hindsight Bias
we tend to believe, after learning an outcome, that we would have foreseen it the “I-knew-it-all-along” phenomenon

Overconfidence
we tend to think we know more than we do

The Need for Psychological Science Critical Thinking
thinking that does not blindly accept arguments and conclusions
examines assumptions discerns hidden values evaluates evidence
The Amazing Randi--Skeptic

The Need for Psychological Science Theory
an explanation using an integrated set of principles that organizes and predicts observations

Hypothesis
a testable prediction often implied by a theory

The Need for Psychological Science

The Need for Psychological Science

Operational Definition
a statement of procedures (operations) used to define research variables Exampleintelligence may be operationally defined as what an intelligence test measures

The Need for Psychological Science Replication
repeating the essence of a research study to see whether the basic finding generalizes to other participants and circumstances usually with different participants in different situations

Description
Psychologists describe behavior using case studies, surveys, and naturalistic observation

Description
Case Study
Psychologists study one or more individuals in great depth in the hope of revealing things true of us all
Is language uniquely human?

Description
Survey
technique for ascertaining the self-reported attitudes or behaviors of people usually by questioning a representative, random sample of people

Random Sample
a sample that fairly represents a population because each member has an equal chance of inclusion

Description
False Consensus Effect
tendency to overestimate the extent to which others share our beliefs and behaviors

Population
all the cases in a group, from which samples may be drawn for a study

Description

Description
If marbles of two colors are mixed well in the large jar, the fastest way to know their ratio is to blindly transfer a few into a smaller one and count them

Description
Naturalistic Observation
observing and recording behavior in naturally occurring situations without trying to manipulate and control the situation

Correlation
Correlation Coefficient
a statistical measure of the extent to which two factors vary together, and thus how well either factor predicts the other
Indicates direction of relationship (positive or negative) Correlation coefficient

r = +.37

Indicates strength of relationship (0.00 to 1.00)

Correlation
Scatterplot
a graphed cluster of dots, each of which represents the values of two variables the slope of the points suggests the direction of the relationship the amount of scatter suggests the strength of the correlation
little scatter indicates high correlation

also called a scattergram or scatter diagram

Correlation

Perfect positive correlation (+1.00)

No relationship (0.00)

Perfect negative correlation (-1.00)

Scatterplots, showing patterns of correlations

(2) Depression could cause Low self-esteem

Two Random Sequences
Your chances of being dealt either of these hands is precisely the same: 1 in 2,598,960.

Experimentation
Experiment
an investigator manipulates one or more factors (independent variables) to observe their effect on some behavior or mental process (the dependent variable) by random assignment of participants the experiment controls other relevant factors

Experimentation
Placebo
an inert substance or condition that may be administered instead of a presumed active agent, such as a drug, to see if it triggers the effects believed to characterize the active agent

Double-blind Procedure
both the research participants and the research staff are ignorant (blind) about whether the research participants have received the treatment or a placebo commonly used in drug-evaluation studies

Experimentation
Experimental Condition
the condition of an experiment that exposes participants to the treatment, that is, to one version of the independent variable

Control Condition
the condition of an experiment that contrasts with the experimental treatment serves as a comparison for evaluating the effect of the treatment

Experimentation
Random Assignment
assigning participants to experimental and control conditions by chance minimizes pre-existing differences between those assigned to the different groups

Experimentation
Independent Variable
the experimental factor that is manipulated the variable whose effect is being studied

Dependent Variable
the experimental factor that may change in response to manipulations of the independent variable in psychology it is usually a behavior or mental process

Experimentation
