A central theme in social psychology is the reciprocal influence of the situation and the individual. How is this evident in your life?

Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapter 1 and Chapter 9 of the textbook (Aronson, E. (with Aronson, J.). (2018). The social animal (12th ed.). Worth.) , Body Ritual Among the Nacirema (https://www.jstor.org/stable/665280?saml_data=eyJzYW1sVG9rZW4iOiIwZmU0ZTQwNi0zODAxLTRkZWItOWM2ZC0yZWQ5NDk0NWU5ZTEiLCJpbnN0aXR1dGlvbklkcyI6WyJjNWZjM2RhNy05N2ZjLTQ4OGItOGUyYi03YTY2Y2Y3MmE4OWMiXX0#metadata_info_tab_contents), and watch The Power of the Situation (https://www.learner.org/series/discovering-psychology/the-power-of-the-situation/?jwsource=cl) and Constructing Social Reality (https://www.learner.org/series/discovering-psychology/constructing-social-reality/?jwsource=cl).
Then, complete the following:

Define social psychology.
Select 10 images that are meaningful to you. Though these can be images of people, aim to capture a variety of images that illustrate ideas or emotions (e.g., truth, love, happiness, hope, honor, etc.), as well as places, events, and objects. Ideally, these will be your own photographs, but if you instead choose images online you must provide appropriate citations. (For free images visit Pexels) Display your chosen images. You may choose to present the images in a collage, PowerPoint slide show, or other format
Interpret your selected images based on your definition of social psychology as a science, specifically the power of the situation (including cultural patterns across space and time) and the construction of social reality. How do these photosor your interpretation of them illustrate social thinking, social influence, or social relations?
Write a paragraph describing your selection from an outsiders perspective, considering why it is important to practice seeing the world through an objective lens from a personal and professional perspective.
