Anyone’s predictions for the psychology papers? I’m thinking something to do with contemporary studies and possibly Milgram.

I guess you could say something like psychology has changed overtime as before lots of unethical experiments were done (e.g Watson and rayner) and now we have more ethical experiments like baddleys study as guidelines were developed over time? Not too sure just an idea x

I'm thinking these could be possible 8 markers:
obedience theories - either agency theory or social impact theory
evaluate case studies
evaluate long term memory or scenario
correlations
evaluate the evolutionary explanation to explain human behaviour
recreational drugs
practical or ethical issues using animals in psychological research
any of the contemporary studies

you could also mention something along the lines of the fact that over time psychology has split into different branches e.g. from freuds unscientific methods, to biological- the most scientific method which shows how we are getting closer to becoming a true science (ignoring the split part of it). and how methods are being more refined e.g. brain scans rather than assumptions

Sherif (just boys)
Bartlett's reconstructive memory states that schemas are packets of information that are formed due to experience - link to culture as different cultures can have different expectations and so different schemes towards something..? could maybe talk about ppl having different and separate lives so would form different schemas
obedience eg: females being more reluctant to continue (blass) Killham and mann ordering and administrating shocks found gender differences
personality having an effect on a persons level of obedience could bring in elms who was an assistant of Milgram and measured the participants personality
Milgram carried out the study first with all men and then repeated his study using females as well and found similar results compare to burger?
Bandura study found that boys were more physical and girls were more social could be linked to culture as it may be a cultural norm for girls to be more social and less active than boys. (boys seen as more powerful?)
