IA Psychology EE Help!

Recommended Posts

Hello..

I am doing my EE in psychology, and the first draft is due in 20 days. I enjoy psychology, and I am quite good at writing scientific essays, but I am lost as far as EE is considered.

I have narrowed topic choices down to this

1) Sociocultural factors in altruistic behaviour

2) Sociocultural origins of violence

I can't seem to easily narrow it down further from this. Both these topics seem to have a lot of material, as I have found several different books on this matter. I need advice on whether I should narrow it down further (probably) and how do I do so... I am part of the second psychology batch at my school, and the last batch did not do very well, so I am pretty worried right now. The latter of the two questions is also explained quite a bit in the book, so I am not too sure. Any advice/opinion/experience is appreciated...

You should definitely narrow it down more. Which specific sociocultural factors of violence has the most material or seems most interesting? Media, upbringing, video games, something else?

Well, initially, I had planned to do it on collectivism/individualism relating with altruism, for the first topic choice, and the weapons effect and its relation with violence/anti-social behaviour for the second.

Right now, I am leaning towards the latter of the two, as my school text book states that for the former of these two topics, research results show quite a bit of bias towards US and other individualistic countries. I don't know if "anti-social" is broad enough either... And my *amazing* school has chosen to leave WAY too much work for WAY too late.

EDIT: Just realized I accidentally added the IA tag. Sorry bout that.
