Social psychologySocial psychology

Social psychology: The study of the mind and mental processes, particularly as regards social interactions, focusing on the ways our actions influence others, and vice versa.

Social psychology is a hybrid discipline, a fusion product of sociology and psychology. (In contrast to psychology's atomization of the human condition, looking into the self and its inner workings, the attention of psychologists tends to be directed toward human connections.) Social psychologists examine, for example, how people's perceptions, belief systems, and behaviors are determined by their positions in social space.
