• John Doe was under the impression that Asians are hard workers

• But the idea contradicted to what he saw• Which was a bunch of Asians just hanging out

during office hours

Page 5: Comic strip breakdown

• PERSON’S ONE GOOD CHARACTER OR PERFORMANCE MIGHT INFLUENCE THE OBSERVER’S OVERALL IMPRESSION OF THE PERSON

HALO EFFECT

Page 6: Comic strip breakdown

• RAJ PHYSICALLY LOOKS SMART AND PROPER • EVERYONE WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT RAJ

IS A GOOD OFFICE WORKER• THAT WAS NOT THE CASE WITH JOHN

Page 7: Comic strip breakdown

SOCIAL LOAFING

• THE TENDENCY FOR PEOPLE IN A GROUP TO GIVE LESS EFFORT TOWARDS ATTAINING A COMMON GOAL THAN WHEN INDIVIDUALLY ACCOUNTABLE.

• FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN WORKING ON A GROUP ASSIGNMENT, ONLY A FEW OF PEOPLE WILL REALLY PUT THEIR EFFORTS IN.

• Upon being placed in a group with Omputeh and Ali – John had observed their behaviours

• Ali in particular – seemed distracted, and decided to take a ‘bathroom break’

• A LONG ‘bathroom break’• Seeing that both Omputeh and John were being attentive to the task at

hand, the sense of work-force dependency and responsibility from Ali’s point of view were significantly reduced

• Hence – Reduced in work performance = Social Loafing

Page 9: Comic strip breakdown

SOCIAL FACILITATION

• INDIVIDUALS PERFORM BETTER IN THE PRESENCE OF OTHER PEOPLE OR WHEN IN A GROUP

Page 10: Comic strip breakdown

• PREVIOUSLY, OMPUTEH WAS CHITCHATTING IN THE OFFICE BUT DURING MEETINGS HE WAS BEING PRO-ACTIVE AND PRODUCTIVE

• THIS SHOWS SOCIAL FACILITATION – BECAUSE OMPUTEH PERFORMED BETTER IN A GROUP AS OPPOSE TO WORKING ALONE

Page 11: Comic strip breakdown

DISCRIMINATION

• A NEGATIVE ATTITUDE TOWARDS MEMBERS OF A GROUP.

Page 12: Comic strip breakdown

• RAJ ASKED JOHN TO COME HANG OUT WITH HIM• JOHN DECLINED THE INVITATION UNDER THE PRECONCEPTION

THAT RAJ IS AN OVERALL BAD PERSON• DUE TO THE FACT THAT JOHN DECLINED BECAUSE OF RAJ’S

ATTITUDE – THIS SHOWS JOHN’S DISCRIMINATION TOWARDS RAJ
