Product Description

Product Description

Ten Interesting Things About Human Behavior is a short, lighthearted look at 10 things human beings do, why we do them, and their significance in our everyday lives. How do we resolve psychological conflict that occurs when our behavior violates our attitudes? Why are we so quick to blame others for their behavior while offering excuses for our own? What should we make of the talking heads on cable TV who argue about the cause of TV violence on children's behavior - whose explanation is correct? Why are reality TV shows, some of which portray contestants as pathetic and dysfunctional, so popular?

Questions like these usually provoke different answers from different people, each of whom may attribute his or her answers to "common sense." One person argues that "of course children mimic violence they see on TV - my kids do" while another attributes it to "poor parenting - because my kids don't." Which is it, and why?

Research psychologists try to answer these questions as best we can. This book is a brief look at the answers to 10 aspects of human behavior - answers derived from controlled behavioral research that is designed to test various theories about behavior. Certainly, there is more to human behavior than the 10 things I chose for this short book. And there are hundreds of primary sources and research reports that describe the research findings in more depth. They're out there if you'd like to read more.

But for those who are new to the field of Experimental Psychology, 10 Things may pique your interest in learning more about the subject. And for those "armchair psychologists" out there who'd like a quick read about the most fascinating creatures on the planet - human beings - I think you'll like it, too.

I really enjoyed this book and read it in one evening.
I will read it agin in a few weeks to ensure more of it sinks in, why do I remember so little of what I read?
It's chapters are brief interesting and demonstrate a practical application. Best of all it was free!
To the author... Great job of writing an interesting and absorbing text book!

This was a great read. Well written and straight to the point with no faffing about. I got the feeling that Suzanne D is in a state of almost permanent fascination with human nature and this enthusiasm comes across to the reader. :-)

Not even worth being free. A short magazine article would give more information in better depth. I wouldn't bother. Pants.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, I recommend it. 9 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Probably something you can find listed on the internet somewhere, as it's very short and quite brief. Although I did enjoy the read and learned a few facts and opinions from it. And it was free and accessible on my Kindle, so I can't complain. It's definitely worth a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting
An interesting short read, though not hugely informative, is a way to fill up an empty time slot whilst gathering a little new information about how we tick.
