Social Cognition

Alexandra Chantzi - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Psychology, Panteion University

Social cognition is an approximation of Social Psychology that focuses on how the intellect is influenced by the broader and immediate social context, and that in turn affects social behavior. It has been considered by many scientists as perhaps the most dominant approach to the interpretation of social behavior. Social psychology was pronounced "cognitive connotation", even from the time of Kurt Lewin, who thought that we can understand social behavior more effectively if we see it as a function of people's perceptions of their surrounding "world". The social intellect examines how people as "social thinkers" process the information they receive from others and the environment and how these processes affect the recruitment of others and their interaction with them. Social cognition is studying how people understand others and themselves and focus on how ordinary people think and feel about people and how they think they think and feel about people.
