The wide study of human beings has led psychologists to the development of many theories explaining the elements that cause a persons behavior and attitude In this paper I would like to reflect upon some of the theories we studied such as the cultivation theory social learning theory the attribution theory and the cognitive dissonance theory and relate them to my life and surrounding environment Id like to first start off with the cultivation theory also keep in mind the social learning theory it is of the same nature For those unfamiliar with this theory it states the more media one consumes the more likely he or she will perceive the world as scary place Now to be totally honest my views about violence in the media and its affects on people were pretty firm I never agreed with this idea whatsoever Because I myself watch a ton of violent programs and listen to probably the most controversial music today it was hard for me to accept that this media was supposedly inflicting harm upon others physically and mentally when in no harmful way did it affect me I always felt that people who were unintentionally affected by the media and act out violently because of certain programs or music just needed a basis for their stupidity or in other words a cheap excuse I just believe that if a child is persuaded into burning the family couch resulting in the death of his little sister because he saw it on a past episode of Bevis and Butthead then I feel that child is unstable Its not the content of the media we need to examine its the child that needs to be picked apart and dissected I have yet to experience a personal situation like this in my life the only cases I can relate to are the ones put on display on TV and in the papers Everyone has their own individual thoughts
