Transcript: My personal prototype of college can be described as an HBCU. A large campus with an abundance of buildings. Lots of school pride and football games. When I think of college I also think of large lecture halls, professors and different classes filled with a good amount of people. Dorm rooms come to mind as well as roommates. Greek life is also a large part of my prototype of college. Movies such as Burning Sands, Drumline amd Stomp the Yard also play a roll in my concept of college. All of these factors would influence my choice on which college I would choose Representativeness Heuristic is a persons tendency to judge the likelihood of something based on how well they conform to a persons prototype. While making my decision, I would most likely choose a school based on how well it relates and conforms to my prototype of college. For example, I would be most likely to choose a HBCU such as the Tuskegee University rather than a PWI such as Samford University. I would also be more likely to choose a larger school such the University of Alabama. Availability Heuristic is based on estimating the probability of certain events in terms on how quickly they come to mind. With this in mind , when I think of attending college I automatically thing of a large campus rather than a small one. This would rule out Tuskegee as an option and put the University of Alabama at the top of my list. Although the University of Alabama is not an HBCU, it does fit into my immediate concept of college. Another obstacle to problem solving that refers to the tendency to overestimate the accuracy of one's beliefs and judgments.With choosing my school, my belief that a larger college will provide a person with a better experience will influence my decision. Despite doing research on the University of Alabama and finding out that it was not a HBCU, I still believe that it has a large amount of African American people. Reflection Zia Cuyler, January 11, 2018, 4th period Representativeness Heuristic My Concept/Prototype of College Obstacles to Problem Solving: Confirmation Bias Availability Heuristic Confirmation Bias is when a person tends to search for information that validates their preconceptions. Looking into the schools, I found that Tuskegee is a HBCU and that the University of Alabama is a large school. The school I ultimately chose is, the University of Alabama. I chose this school not only because it fits into my concept of college, but because the problems of problem solving influenced my decision in a drastic way.

Transcript: Representativeness Heuristic Belief Perseverance Overconfidence essentially means that we have too much faith that what we believe is correct. For example, if someone had always wanted to go to Harvard, they may believe that it is the right college for them, when in fact, it may not be the best college to prepare them for their desired career. A compensatory model is a way to balance the good and bad aspects of something to help make a decision. I decided to make a Pro-Con list to decide whether or not I would like to look into attending Troy University. My prototype of a college is San Diego State University because that's where my parents both went. Having a prototype for a college can set standards for my choice in what college to attend. The representativeness heuristic helps explain how a prototype affects our choice in college. Representativeness heuristic basically means that we compare things in our lives to prototype, or our first remembered example something. So, when we look for a college, we subconsciously compare it to our prototype for a college (in my case, SDSU). Prototype Belief perseverance is when someone holds on to what they believe in, even when they logically shouldn't. For example, someone who strongly believes that they will get into an Ivy League school even though they only have a 2.0 GPA. They held on to the belief that they would attend one of their dream colleges even though it wasn't realistic. Reflection Compensatory Model Cons: -close to home -brother will be there -small town -not a very strong school for careers in education -not many friends going - not many scholarships available -less networking opportunities -less well-known Heuristics are understood as being shortcuts for problem solving that are based on past experiences. When choosing a college to attend, we subconsciously use heuristics. For example, when we look at the location of a college, we pay attention to its proximity to family and friends. You may rely on past experiences to decide whether or not you want to live close to your family. Availability Heuristic Heuristic design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi Some obstacles to solving this problem could include financial responsibility, parental opinion, and proximity to important things. For example, if one college is offering a larger scholarship than another, I would consider the first over the second. Also, if the college I'm considering is on the other side of the country from my family and friends, I probably won't choose to go there. You can use the availability heuristic to help choose a college to go to. When deciding what college I want to go to, I would compare colleges that I know most about, which I would think of first. This represents the availability heuristic because the information that is most readily available would come to mind. Overconfidence Belief bias is when we have a preconceived idea about the result of something which ends up affecting that result. This can apply to college in that if you believe you will get into your dream college, you will subconsciously work harder to achieve that goal. Confirmation bias is when we look for information in things that confirms what we believe. For example, if someone were raised by parents who were strict Alabama fans and has heard bad things about Auburn for years, when looking at Auburn for information about attending, they might look for information that confirms what they think. Obstacles Pros: -close to home -brother will be there -good education -great campus -opportunities for traveling and studying abroad -less people= more time with professors Confirmation Bias This project will help me choose a college because it helped me realize how useful these problem solving techniques can be. Creating a compensatory model helped me break down and look at the benefits of attending the college I decide to apply to. Being able to break down and look at the details of this decision makes it seem less overwhelming and takes off some of the pressure. This project also allowed me to realize how psychological concepts are present in everyday life. Belief Bias Choices, Choices, Choices Danielle Roberts 4th Block

Transcript: Trying to find the right college for me was difficult. I was first faced with the task of being accepted. Schools no longer want the kids with 4.0 but add community involvement onto of that. I have no intention of staying in Enterprise so I can remove all community colleges like ESCC and Wallace. I have also sucked every last bit of knowledge from my friends so it made no difference if we all went to the same place. With money being a factor I focused mostly on instate colleges such Auburn, Alabama, Troy, South and UAB. I plan to major in a computer engineering field which Auburn and Alabama are much more know for versus the beforehand mentioned schools. I have been applying for multiple scholarships and continue my community involvement. I have successfully been accepted everywhere I have applied and I have decided that I will be attending the Auburn University. copy and paste as needed to add notes to your brainstorm Overconfidence Apply it BRAINSTORM ELEMENTS Belief Bias for me would be choosing Alabama if my mom, my dad, my sister, and my baby sitter all when there but I wanted to attend Auburn even with offering me less money then Alabama. Believe Perseverance is when people argue that Alabama or UAB has a bad Engineering program compared to Auburn, but I fail to listen because I enjoyed their campus life more. Choices Choices Choices... My view on college is what most Alabamians think of... Problem Solving Belief Bias + Perseverance After seeing Auburn's campus (and loving it) but not actually touring it I still believe its the school for me. I couldn't find any negative review about Auburn only bias reviews from Alabama students disregarding Auburn's standards. Alexander Cardona Auburn or Alabama People will argue prestige but in reality it is just another school in the "great" state of Alabama. In today’s world and job market the impression is if you don’t go to college you will not succeed. While attending on of Alabama’s prestigious universities I hope to gain business and technology knowledge, show responsibility, and learn discipline, teamwork, goal setting, organizational and time management skills. While attending college I will be exposed to different cultures that will foster creative, social and physical skills, build lasting friendships and create a lifetime of memories. Whether it is the socializing or the highs and lows of my college life, it is important to me not just for the future that will come, but for the many positive experiences that will help me become a well-rounded individual ready for the real world. Although I have already picked Auburn as my school of choice, I did use most of these methods. I did not want to attend community college due to a preconceived idea that they are for less qualified individuals. I had problems comparing schools because of instate rivalry capable of a a civil war. Availability Heuristic Availability heuristics for me was scholarship availability. By the end of my junior year most of my friends had already join the 30+ club on the ACT. However even with that football players scoring less than that would get full rides to big name universities and the school would even show the signings in an assembly. People always say “do well in school” or “score high on your ACT” and you’ll be able to go anywhere you want, however this is not longer the case. It seems that more praise, money, and recognition is given to those who are awarded sports scholarship than academic. Confirmation Bias Confirmation bias existed during my college search. I chose to disregard community colleges because I believed they are lesser of a school then larger universities like Alabama or Auburn. I didn’t have plans to become a doctor so I removed UAB. I did want to be an engineer and that’s what Auburn is widely know for. Use any reasoning to argue for or against the subject. Argue For or Against It
