Persons one good character or performance might influence the observers overall impression of the personHALO EFFECT
Raj physically looks smart and proper everyone was under the impression that raj is a good office workerThat was not the case with john
SOCIAL LOAFING The tendency for people in a group to give less effort towards attaining a common goal than when individually accountable.
For example, when working on a group assignment, only a few of people will really put their efforts in.
Upon being placed in a group with Omputeh and Ali John had observed their behavioursAli in particular seemed distracted, and decided to take a bathroom breakA LONG bathroom breakSeeing that both Omputeh and John were being attentive to the task at hand, the sense of work-force dependency and responsibility from Alis point of view were significantly reducedHence Reduced in work performance = Social Loafing
SOCIAL FACILITATION Individuals perform better in the presence of other people or when in a group
Previously, Omputeh was chitchatting in the office but during meetings he was being pro-active and productiveThis shows social facilitation because Omputeh performed better in a group as oppose to working alone
DISCRIMINATIONA negative attitude towards members of a group.
Raj asked John to come hang out with himJohn declined the invitation under the preconception that raj is an overall bad PersonDue to the fact that John declined because of Rajs attitude this shows Johns Discrimination towards raj
