1. The ABC Model of Attitudes: Affect, Behavior & Cognition
Attitudes are an important topic of study for social psychologists. In this lesson, we define attitudes and discuss their three components as illustrated by the ABC Model: affective, behavioral and cognitive.
2. Implicit vs. Explicit Attitudes: Definition, Examples & Pros/Cons
In this lesson, we define and distinguish between implicit and explicit attitudes. We also identify various methods used to measure attitudes and the pros and cons of each.
3. Elaboration Likelihood Model of Persuasion: Central vs. Peripheral Route
The Elaboration Likelihood Model is discussed in this lesson, including the distinction between the central route and the peripheral route, examples of each route and when people are likely to take one route over the other.
4. How Emotion Influences Attitudes and Persuasion
Emotions can be used to induce attitude change in a number of ways. In this lesson, we discuss how they can be used within persuasive communication to illicit both short-term and long-term attitude change.
5. Types of Persuasion Techniques: How to Influence People
It's easy to underestimate just how frequently we are affected by persuasion techniques. In this lesson, we discuss four of the classics: low-balling, foot-in-the-door, door-in-the-face, and scarcity. We also define and discuss reactance theory in relation to scarcity.
6. Subliminal Messages: Definition, Examples & Validity
The use of subliminal messages - especially in advertising - has been controversial for decades. In this lesson, we define subliminal messages and discuss their validity using several examples of research conducted on the topic.
7. Attitude Inoculation: Definition, Explanation & Examples
Every day, other people try to persuade us into changing our attitudes and behavior. In this lesson, we discuss a couple of ways to resist persuasion - using attitude inoculation, in particular. We define attitude inoculation and explain how it can prevent attitude change in spite of persuasion efforts.
8. Theory of Planned Behavior: Definition, Examples & Usefulness
Most assume that our attitudes determine our behavior. However, according to the theory of planned behavior, there is more to predicting behavior than just knowing one's attitude. In this lesson, we discuss this theory and its usefulness in predicting actual behavior.
9. Merton's Strain Theory: Definition & Examples
Robert Merton (1910-2003) argued that society may be set up in a way that encourages too much deviance. Learn more about Robert Merton's strain theory and test your knowledge with a quiz.

11. Primary Deviance: Definition & Examples
In this lesson, we will define primary deviance and compare it with secondary deviance. We will look into various examples that display the sociological concept.
12. Terminal Values: Definition & Examples
Terminal values are one of two types of values distinguished by social psychologist Milton Rokeach. In this lesson, you'll learn about terminal values through examples, and then test your knowledge with a brief quiz.
13. Self-Esteem Issues in Adults with ADHD
Approximately four percent of adults over the age of 18 have ADHD. This lesson will review adult ADHD, describe how it impacts self-esteem, and provide some suggestions for improving self-esteem.
14. Implicit Self-Esteem: Definition & Examples
Some people seem to have a better view of self than others. Why is that? This lesson talks about one possible reason called implicit self-esteem. The concept is defined, examples are provided, and pros and cons of this type of esteem are delineated.
