I have always wanted to learn about social psychology, you know, controlling people and shit. I have googled the hell out of the internet, and I didn't get any useful information on topic.

Does anyone in The Pit have any experience with Social Psychology? Maybe give me some objectively written books? (not those moralistic bullshit about 'why people are bad' or anything like that, I need real people manipulation)

Thanks in advance

I'm doing a free course right now on coursera.org called Beginner's Guide to Irrational Behaviour, provided by a Duke university professor and I think it's pretty much exactly what you're looking for. Each week you get some videos, some reading and some quizzes to make. It's in week 2 right now, but you can still join in and catch up.

See that guy?

He's not doing that because he wants to. He's doing it because that other guy made him think he wants to.

There, I have successfully given you the same amount of information any social psychology course would. $1,000 please.

I'm currently studying social psychology for an exam and I can safely say that you don't know what social psychology is.

Even if you did know what social psychology is, you don't want to learn about social psychology.

Looks like someone takes himself a little too seriously.

Social Psychology is just a really terrible subject and I've been studying it way too much lately and I'm just bitter about the whole damn thing.

OT: I'm sure Derren Brown has books, just read them I guess. I'd reckon they'd have something relevant to what you're looking for or at least give you a jumping off point.

No worries. I'd be frustrated if I was forced into the subject.

Can't make the quiz for week 1 anymore though. I looked at it, but basically if you read one of his books you get the exact same information that is in the course.

Do you enjoy being in debt and blowing your money on knowledge that is practically useless in the real world?
