Impacts of Cognitive and Social Learning on Behavior

5-1 Discussion: Impacts of Cognitive and Social Learning on Behavior

In this module, you will be exposed to topics that include social cognition and social learning. Throughout your life experience, you are constantly challenged to consider the world within and the world outside of you. The world within is characterized by your thoughts, assumptions, and attitudes; the outside world can present you with behaviors of others that are different from your own. Your behavior can be influenced by both your internal mental processes and your observations of others in the world.We will explore your experiences with social and cognitive learning theory. To complete this discussion, use Chapter 6 and Chapter 8 of your textbook reading, as well as your life experience. Your response to each bullet below should be about 2 to 3 sentences in length.

For your initial post, answer the following questions:

What is an example of behavior modeling that you have experienced in your personal or professional life? Describe the behavior that was modeled and imitated. You can provide an example where your behavior was influenced or you influenced the behavior of someone else.
What were the consequences of that behavior? Were there any unintended consequences?
To what extent should anyone be mindful of or responsible for the influence of their behavior on others? Use an example to explain your response.
What was the relationship between the subject modeling the behavior and the subject imitating it? Why is that significant?
Select one of the following questions to answer that relates to the example you provide:
How do mental processes manifest in the behavior you identified in your example? How do cognitive and social cognitive theory relate to your example?
Did it provide order or clarity about yourself, others, or the world? How do cognition or personal constructs relate to your example?
Did it model an emotional response? How does cognitive theory relate to your example?
Explain the synergy between thoughts and behaviors in your example.
Finally, describe how studying behaviorism connects to one of the following programmatic themes:

Social justice
Emotional intelligence
Career connections
Remember to respond to two peers while being respectful of and sensitive to their viewpoints. Consider advancing the discussion in the following ways:

Post an article, video, or additional research to reinforce a peer’s idea or challenge them to see their point from a different perspective.
Consider asking a content-relevant question or discussing your personal experience.

  • Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

    We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g., we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

    We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from and send us the report.
