an infographic created as part of Dr. Erchull’s Social Psychology course (Spring 2021)
Students were asked to “give psychology away” through an infographic designed to educate an audience of their choice about an idea from social psychology that the group would benefit from understanding
TOPIC: self-handicapping AUDIENCE: high school students
Hi Krista! I found your project to be very impressive and I loved the theme. I think you included so much information about self-handicapping and the flow of the infographic works very well. As you go down through the texts, it takes you through a thought process and I thought that was really cool.
Good project! You provide good information and examples. I like that you include the limitations/possible negative consequences of self-handicapping.
I think this information is really important for more people to understand. A lot of people “take the easy way out” by handicapping or engaging in self-fulfilling prophecies, when effort leads to more growth. Having one running example across concepts was a great idea to make everything stick together!
I really enjoyed reading over your infographic. I thought it was eye-catching and loved the colors that you used. I also really liked the flow of it. I think that this should be displayed around schools because I think a lot of students do this but do not know that it is an actual thing or why they do it.
