Now, think about stereotypes that people who are not in this social group might have of its members. For instance, boring and nerdy is often the stereotype of someone who frequents a library.

Breaking Social Norms Activity

Social norms guide and direct our behavior. Social norms are not laws, and we are not required to act in certain ways, but we do. We often get irritated when others do not act appropriately for the situation. In addition, it can make us uncomfortable to break a social norm.

Write one or two paragraphs about a time you broke a social norm. Did you do it on purpose? Did you know you broke the norm or did someone point it out to you? How did you feel about breaking the norm?  Where do you think that norm came from?   Do you think it is important that we, as a society, maintain this social norm? Why or why not? 

Exchange papers with a classmate (either in person or online) to evaluate their violation of a norm.  Answer the following questions:

Do you think the behavior is a violation of a social norm? Have you ever broken this norm? Where do you think that norm came from? Do you think it is important that we, as a society, maintain this social norm? Why or why not?

Psychology of Evil Discussion
