How does having a negative self-schema affect one's social interactions? How does social intelligence affect one's responses in any given situation? How might a person's self-guides impact his or her perspective on the world?
If you expect negative responses from others, then you'll probably get them. A person must be socially aware of the perceptions of others in order to respond appropriately. If you perceive the world as hostile, you'll probably respond negatively; if you perceive the world as friendly, you'll probably respond in a friendly fashion.
