Response 2:
“Social psychology is the scientific attempt to explain how the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of individuals are influenced by the actual, imagined, or implied
presence of other human beings.” (Fiske, S. T., 2014, Chapter 01).
Social psychology is the study of how humans react to each other with in a specific culture or those around them. So multicultural psychology would be the larger
version of that so to speak multi cultural psychology would study how multiple cultures would interact with each other or how different or similar multiple cultures
are to each other. In essence it’s a relatively similar field of study just with different parameters. Social psychologist for example may explore how students in a
single classroom react to one another whereas a Multi cultural psychologist would explore how to different cultures within a city a interacted with each other. I
personally am much fonder of the subject of social psychology.

Response 3:
After reading the chapters on social and multicultural psychology, my understanding of relative association are humanistic interaction and behavioral influence
people have on one another.I do believe the two are both intertwined and helpful to one another because just like the equation concerning social psychology of
imaged and implied, although one is if a thinking process of feelings as the example of the text of a person walking into a classroom late and others looking at you
and you presume the thoughts, the example of the red light of not of not running it when no one is around at 3 am in the morning, example of implied, you still in a
way thought of its process, you still need the thought process (Fiske, 2014). so like wise they Social and Multicultural psychology help one another out in its one
scientific concept.
They share distinction in that social psychology focus on the scientific study of people influencing other people (Fiske, 2014 ) and multicultural psychology defines
the systematic study of all areas of human behavior as it occurs in an environment where people from various backgrounds engage one another (Lott, 2010). Social
psychology looks into what motivates and influences behaviors socially, economically, globally, and individually. what causes a person to trust understand, belong to
a certain group, class of people, communicate, identify values self (Fiske, 2014). Multicultural psychology addresses behavioral interaction across cultural groups to
examining personality, attitude, culture, and ethnic influences (“What Is Multicultural Psychology?”, 2019).
