FC: Psychology | FOR KIDS | Gabriel Gonzalez Maria Tello

1: Meet Charlie: a bright student that has just transferred to a new elementary school and seems to be having a difficult time in social environments. | 1

2: 2

3: This is Bob. Unlike Charlie, he's a frustrated young boy who has trouble learning and understanding his teacher during class. | 3

4: 4

5: On his first day of school, Charlie was made fun of by Bob because he correctly answered questions the teacher asked. | 5

6: 6

7: Because of Bob, the rest of the students also began to make fun of Charlie. | 7

8: (Pie) | 8

9: Charlie then went to the cafeteria to try and escape Bob. However, Bob showed up and alienated Charlie from eating with the rest of the students by throwing food (a pie) at him. | 9

10: 10

11: Other classmates also started to do the same, and more began to join, for they took on the role of the "big bully" themselves. | 11

12: It's a good thing I can't see anything from this stall... | Me too. | Me three. | 12

13: To make matters worse, a few days later Charlie was beaten up by Bob after he tried to defend himself during a dispute. Students also ignored the beating and even tended to ignore it more if there were more people present. | 13

14: I have something to tell you... | 14

15: Finally, after weeks of torment, a girl named Stacy helped Charlie by telling the teacher about Bob's bullying and violence. | 15

16: 16

17: After Stacy told on Bob, the teasing stopped. Oddly enough, the more the students were exposed to Charlie, the more they began to like and accept him as a friend. | 17

18: What You Learned About Psychology | Page 5: Displacement- Bob diverts his aggression toward Charlie Page 7: Conformity (Ascher)- The rest of the class conforms to Bob's behavior by joining in on Charlie's humiliation Page 9: Bob further displays his narcissistic personality

19: Page 11: Deindividuation- Students lost their self-restraint while in a group; lost their specific identity and took on the role of the "bully" Page 13: Bystander Effect- Students were less likely to help Charlie if other people were present Page 15: Cognitive Dissonance- Stacy's actions finally correspond with her belief that Bob's bullying must be put to an end Page 17: Mere Exposure Effect- Repeated exposure to Charlie eventually increased the kid's liking of him
