People Watching 101 – Naturalistic
Observation

Many people enjoy sitting and watching other people. As a budding psychologist, you should know
that this is how psychologists often discover what they would like to study in
greater depth.

For this assignment, you will go out into a space where people are
congregating and observe them for about 30 minutes. This type of research is called naturalistic
observation. The goal of naturalistic
observation is to watch a naturally occurring behavior and not change it in any
way. People should not know they are
being watched; otherwise, they may not act naturally.

Bring a pad of paper along with you and take notes about the things that
you find interesting. Just try to be
unobtrusive. Choose one particular
behavior to focus on and watch several people.
Make sure that you focus on one behavior to watch and take notes on the
behavior. Try to be objective. Note the behavior, but try not to interpret
it.

Once you have completed your observation, document your findings in a 2
to 3 page paper (excluding title and references pages). The paper should use APA formatting and
include a title and reference page, even if the only resource used was the
course textbook. Please visit the
Academic Resource Center for helpful guidelines on APA style and
citations. Please address the following
elements in your paper:

1. Describe the setting and time period.
2. Describe the specific behavior(s) you observed
3. What theory can you develop resulting from the
observation?
4. Compare your naturalistic observation to at least
one other approach to research listed in Chapter 2. Be sure to be specific in your answer.
