What makes a Hero? (Links to an external site.)

Watch the clip and answer the questions below, be sure to use content covered in the chapter.

Dr. Philip Zimbardo is a Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and the author of The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil. He has also conducted several different types of experiences that you may all be familiar with. In this clip, Dr Zimbardo describes several examples of people who acted heroically despite risks to their own personal safety.

Thought Questions:

  1. Can you think of any personality explanations for why some people may be more likely to act heroically? What do you think are the situational influences on heroism?
  2. Is it easier to think of personality or situational explanations for heroic behavior?
  3. Do you think that someone who acts heroically in one situation would be more likely to act heroically in another situation than a person who does not? Why or why not?

** Be sure to use topics/concepts covered in the chapter in your posts. Once you post your response (150-200 words). Respond to 2 classmates responses (75 words). Make sure your reply is constructive feedback, clear, and offer an explanation to your response.


I will send replies after discussion is done
