Lecture 16 - A Person in the World of People: Self and Other, Part I

This video was recorded at YALE PSYC 110 - Introduction to Psychology with Professor Paul Bloom. This is the first of two lectures on social psychology, the study of how we think about ourselves, other people, and social groups. Students will hear about the famous "six degrees of separation" phenomenon and how it illuminates important individual differences in social connectedness. This lecture also reviews a number of important biases that greatly influence how we think of ourselves as well as other people.
