Assignment 1 Takeaway

What I learned from assignment one is about the four heuristics in social psychology: representativeness heuristic, availability heuristic, anchoring & adjustment heuristic , and status Quo heuristic. This could apply to what I learned in my child psychology class last semester. When we were talking about why parents parent the way they do. The assignment was personally relevant to me because an example of  availability heuristic is people are scared to fly in an airplane but not scared to drive a car. This correlates to me because I’m terrified to fly on a plane and now I know why because of the core memories I have of plane crashes.
