1. Discuss times that you have been hesitant to change your attitude. What factors increased the likelihood that you would change your attitude? What factors kept you from changing your attitude? How do you try to persuade others to change their attitudes?
2. Social influence is a change in behavior caused by real or imagined pressure. Social influence differs from persuasion because persuasion is the change in attitudes and not necessarily behavior. The three primary categories of social influence are: conformity, compliance, and obedience. Choose one category then discuss an instance you were affected by it. Could you prevent it from happening now? Why or why not?
