In this assignment, we were assigned in a group consisting of 4 students and are required to make a social psychology conceptual video clip as well as a presentation that implements 5 different concepts that are from each chapters. Through this assignment, it aims to allow the students to learn and understand the connections among each of the concepts and theories within psychology. Also, this assignment thought us how to implement the concepts and theories that we have learned from each lecture that we were taught in class.

Furthermore, the concepts we chose were all acted out by group members. Before we started filming our video, we had discussed in a meeting among our group members about our storyline and script. The concepts that were applied in the video are social influence, first impression, motivation, observational thinking and self-efficacy.

Lastly, throughout meetings and filming done together, we as a group are able to understand more about the concepts that we have used better in a more social context.

MethodApparatus and materials usedIphone 6 was used to record the whole video as we had tried using Iphone 6 to record the other videos before and the results were amazing. Props like stationeries, books and smartphones were used in the video to make the video more realistic.

Procedure 1) 25th January 2016 : We gathered at university and had our first meeting. We discussed the storyline and modified it together. We gave our opinion about the concepts that were needed to be used in the video. We also wrote the script together so that we know what we should say and act in the video. After finish discussing, we started to film our video as we were free. We choose the suitable venue to record the video. 75% of the video was completed filming on that day.2) 30th January 2016 : We gathered at university to have our second meeting. We gathered outside the classroom to film the last scene of our video. We discussed how we should act and say in the video. After finish filming, we separated the report into few parts and distributed to everyone.3) 31th January 2016 : We discussed about some minor improvements to the video and report online. Everyone sent in their part to compile as a report. Presentation slides and video were also done on the same day.


We discussed about the storyline, script, concept with definition and examples in a group.1) Storyline One day, Alfred and Sheng Zhe was sitting on a table playing their smartphones. Sheng Zhe then suggested Alfred to go shopping. As they walked by Michelle, they saw her studying alone. Michelle asked them about where they were going and Alfred told her that they were going shopping. Alfred asked Michelle whether she wants to join them or not. Michelle then decided to stop studying and hang out with them.

On the other hand, as three of them were heading to the car park, they noticed Kimberly studying outside the library. Kimberly asked them about where they were going and Sheng Zhe told Kimberly that they were going shopping. Sheng Zhe asked Kimberly whether she would like to join them but Kimberly rejected his invitation and decided to continue studying for finals. Three of them left after saying goodbye to Kimberly.

Subsequently, Alfred changed his mind and told Michelle and Sheng Zhe that why not they study earlier for their finals as well. Alfred suggested them to go study with Kimberly, they thought for a while and agreed.

Until the examination day, four of them gathered outside the examination room. They were studying their notes in their smartphone. Lastly, they gained confidence by encouraging themselves. They went into the examination room and they believed that they will achieve a better result.

3) Concept1) Social influenceDefinition: The process by which ones thoughts and actions are affected by othersConcept description: Social influence takes many forms and can be seen in conformity, socialization, peer pressure, obedience, leadership, persuasion, sales and marketing.Example: When Michelle was studying, she was influenced by Alfred and Sheng Zhe and decided to go shopping with them and gave up in studying.

2) First impressionDefinition: The event when one person first encounters another person and forms a mental image of that personConcept description: First impressions are not deliberate, they are not formed by watching others actions. They may be instantaneous and research finds that impressions are made after only .10 seconds.Example: When Michelle, Alfred and Sheng Zhe saw Kimberly studying, they assumed Kimberly was a hardworking girl.

3) Extrinsic motivationDefinition: Taking a certain action in response to external pressure or obligationConcept description: Action might be done to avoid punishment or earn a specific reward and it can actually inhibit behaviors if used at the wrong time. Preferences for tasks that are intrinsically or extrinsically rewarded are influenced by culture.Example: Michelle, Alfred and Sheng Zhe decided to go back to study instead of going shopping because they thought that they should study earlier to get a good result in the examination.

4) Observational learningDefinition: Watching others engage in behaviors and then repeating those actionsConcept description: Observational learning can explain how we acquire attitudes, fears, opinions, or specific behaviors.Example: Michelle, Alfred and Sheng Zhe saw Kimberly studying, therefore they decided to study like her.

5) Self efficacyDefinition: Your belief in your ability to achieve certain goalsConcept description: According to Albert Bandura (1977), people with high self-efficacy see difficult tasks as challenges and people with low self-efficacy see difficult tasks as something to be avoided.Example: Everyone was confident and they believed that they will do well in their examination.
