The Interpersonal Perception Task
Unlike most videos, this study of nonverbal communication and social perception allows viewers to participate. It shows 30 brief scenes of common social interactions. Each is followed by a multiple-choice question, giving the viewer the chance to “decode” something important about the interaction. Only one answer is correct in each instance.
There are five essential themes: intimacy, competition, deception, kinship, and status. The video comes with a blank answer sheet to be duplicated for classroom use, a “key” with correct answers, and an extensive facilitator’s guide. Produced by Dane Archer and Mark Costanzo.
