Should you trust your first impression? - Peter Mende-Siedlecki Social psychology is a branch of psychology focused on the scientific study of how people think about and relate to one another. One of the core research areas within social psychology concerns the question of how we learn about and evaluate other people based on their behavior. Expanding on the theories of early pioneers like Solomon Asch, Fritz Heider, and Harold Kelley, social psychologists have identified consistent patterns that govern how form stable impressions of the people around us. For instance, research suggests that when learning about a person’s moral character, bad behavior weighs more heavily on our impressions than good behavior. However, when learning about a person’s abilities, achievement is more informative than failure. Much of this lesson is influenced by the research of psychologists like Susan Fiske, John Skowronski and Donal Carlston, and Bogdan Wojciszke.

Sea Creature Self-Portrait 150 Million Years in the Making Dr. Phil Wilby and his team were thrilled to find the famed Victorian dig site in Wiltshire that had been lost for nearly 170 years. But when they dug in and examined an ordinary-looking rock, they found something they never expected: a perfectly preserved, 150 million-year-old ink sac. The ink inside was so well preserved that they were able to take a small amount of it, combine it with an ammonia solution, and make an ink with which they drew the creature’s portrait and wrote its Latin name: Belemnotheutis antiquus. The squid-like creatures died in droves in the area of the dig site approximately 155 million years ago. (image via: GNN)
