Attitudes and attributions
It’s funny how certain topics tend to stick in your mind and others don’t. I’ve spent most of today so far revising the attitudes and attributions chapters. With attitudes, I now feel absolutely confident that I can tackle any of the previous questions, so if something similar comes up on Thursday I should be fine. As for attributions though, I simply can’t get Langdridge and Butt’s critique straight. It still makes little sense to me! However, I’m hoping that I can use Merleau-Ponty’s argument about the overvaluing of empiricism and intellectualism elsewhere, as I do understand that part of it …
Tomorrow I’m going to go back to group processes and will try to write out yet more essay plans and exam answers. My hand hurts already!
At the moment, just under three days out from the exam, it all feels like it’s starting to come together. However, I really hope the examiners don’t decide to get creative with the social judgement questions and mix and match the attributions and attitudes chapters.
They wouldn’t do that, would they?
