Behavior Change

Ultimately, the knowledge you gain from studies in social cognition can help you better understand how to change behavior. Fishbein and Ajzen’s (2009) theory of reasoned action and theory of planned behavior are seminal models for behavioral change. These models have evolved as a result of decades of research on how various social cognitive factors such as attitudes, norms, and perceived control can impact both our intentions and our behavior.

In the essay, please follow the structure as below:

1. A brief description of a behaviour that you would like to change:

Change the organisations’ behaviour of producing gender bias ads which stereotype
women.

2. Then, explain the conditions necessary for the behavior to change according to Fishbein and Ajzen’s theory of reasoned action.

3. Finally, explain two potential challenges to changing the behavior and explain two ways you might address those challenges according to the theory of planned behavior.
