Social psychology

You have learned about social psychology and how our lives and cultures revolve around how
we think about, influence, and relate to one another. Apply what you have learned to the
provided scenario.
David’s history teacher asked him why so many German people complied with Hitler’s orders to
systematically slaughter millions of innocent Jews. David suggested that the atrocities were
committed because the Germans had become unusually cruel, sadistic people with abnormal and
twisted personalities.
In an essay of two-to-four pages (600–1200 words), use your knowledge of the fundamental
attribution error and Milgram’s research on obedience to highlight the weaknesses of David’s
explanation. Your paper should discuss each of the following concepts and apply them to
David’s explanation:
1. Fundamental attribution error (15 points possible)
2. Milgram’s research (15 points possible)
3. Altruism (20 points possible)
4. Prejudice (20 points possible)
5. Scapegoating (20 points possible)
