  8. 8. 3.Discussion i.ConceptandDefinition Social interaction is defined as the way people talk and act with each other and various structures in the society. It may include the interaction a family has together, for instance, eating, sleeping or even living together or bureaucracies that are formed out of theneedtocreateorderwithintheinteractionitself. Our main theme, social interaction can somehow result the four other concepts, optimistic bias, hostile aggression, bystander effect and extrinsic motivation. These four are traits of human psychology that are portrayed and explained in the context of both our video and our presentation slides, and also further backed up by written analysis and study through this report and presented throughslidesforfurtherunderstanding. 7
  9. 9. ii.StoryboardDesign Starting off having 4 storylines that have been prepared by one of the member through paper and pen, which consists of stories about Smoking, A guy in love with a girl, A girl looking for a job & A group assignment. After discussing of which storyline are more necessary for us to make it into a video, all members agreed to choose A group assignment as our storyboard, that can involve all ofthememberstoparticipateinthevideo.

Concept Definition: As explained before, social interaction is the way people talk and act with each other, in this case, a group discussion. Explanation: Social interaction is a rather vast concept to talk about. It may overlap with other disciplines like sociology, personality psychology and cognitive psychology. It is also the foundation of society. Without interaction, there would be no grouplife. Application: Cynthia, Jia Kiam and Carmen are doing their group assignment and realized that one of their group member, Afiqah has not arrived yet, in fact, Afiqah was half an hour late.

Explanation: It is also known as unrealistic or comparative optimism and is a cognitive bias that causes a person to believe that they are less at risk of experiencing a negative event. Like how Cynthia said that she expected the grade to get an A and to be the best in class even though she knows that Afiqah did not contributetothegroup. Application: As the lecturer place their assignment on the table, a Ccanbeseenattherighttopofthepaper. 10
