Norms Normative Social
Influence Informational Social
Influence Social Roles Social Scripts Social Influence By: Carlie Kapp, Stacee Horwitz, Michelle Romano,
And
Morgan Colander A phenomenon where people assume the actions
of others in an attempt to reflect correct behavior
for a given situation. Norms are unwritten rules defining appropriate and inappropriate behavior. Normative social influence involves conforming in order to be accepted or liked by a group, not necessarily because one actually believes the things one is doing or saying.
Expectations for the ways in which people are expected to behave in specific situations within their social group
>Expectations are created and defined by individual's society
> Different societies have different social roles http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi2130510361/ The robot was brought in to work for the man and he is firing the robot because she is not preforming well. She tried to reflect his workers correct behaviors mental tapes for how to act, provided by our culture Example #1
The Bible
Many people would say that the Bible tells people how to act. “Love
your neighbor.” The Ten Commandments tell people what they can and cannot do.
“Honor your father and mother.” “Do not worship any other god but me.” When
people are in situations they may refer back to these commands, lessons from Jesus,
or stories in the Bible to help them figure out how to act. Example #2
Magazines
Magazines tell us what we need to be. Don’t make excuses, just get up
and exercise and get fit because that is what is attractive and expected in society.
They tell you what to eat, what to do, and how to live your life to become the
“perfect” woman.

I Am Really a Princess by Carol Diggory Shields This book depicts the life of a little girl who believes she is a princess.
She names things in her life that the king and queen would not approve of because
princesses deserve better.
She has to share a room with her sister but the king and queen
would insist she has a huge room in a tower with a pony, huge
bed, and toys.
She has to take piano lessons but the king and queen would say
that she already knows how to play perfectly.
She can’t have sleepovers on school nights but the king and
queen would say she can have friends over whenever she
wants.
This little girl has been taught through stories and movies what a
princess’ life should be like. It is the script for a princess life and this book passes it
on to girls like my sister who read it by telling them what a princess’ life is like. In this video two teenagers go to McDonald's to get ice cream cones and instead of grabbing the cone by the bottom he grabs it from the top. This is an example of something that is not a norm. In the movie mean girls, Cady (Lindsey Lohan) goes from being home schooled her whole life to being a high school student at the near by school. She soon realizes that she is not fitting in. She meets "the plastics" and completely changes her look to fit into their group. This video focuses mainly on gender roles within our society. It explains how mothers (females) are more gentle, kind and better at beauty while fathers (males) are better at displaying courage and bravery.
