Applied Scenarios – Social Psychology

Write a short written text of maximum 750 words . This should draw on lecture content but also make use of
additional sources. The Scenario that you will be writing a response to is hear below.
Steven travels a short distance to a shop and then realises he doesn’t have a face mask, although current
guidelines state that it is compulsory to wear in the shop. He feels a strong uncomfortable tension between going
inside anyway and returning home to get a mask, but eventually he decides to go inside anyway. Subsequently
he decides to stop wearing masks so often and does not feel bad about it. Use social psychology theory to
explain to Steven why he might feel and behave this way.
