Discussion Spark: Forgiveness

One type of prosocial behavior that is of special interest has to do with one’s capacity to extend forgiveness to others. Not surprisingly, those who forgive tend to be more prosocial than those who do not forgive others (Karremans, Van Lange, & Holland, 2005). In the Spark question this week, you are going to explore your thoughts on this concept of forgiveness. What exactly is forgiveness, and what do you think predicts why some people are more forgiving than others?

By Day 2

Post a response to the following:

How would you define forgiveness in your own words? Why do you think some people are more forgiving than others? Does our capacity for forgiveness vary according to our stage of development? If so, how?

Note: Discussion Sparks are intended to generate ideas and spark thoughts before you review the week’s Learning Resources or begin your Assignments. Therefore, no APA citations of Learning Resources are required for your Spark posts. For this reason, your responses may be briefer than a regular Discussion post and are due on Day 2 (unlike regular Discussion posts, which are due on Day 4). A response post is not required, although you are welcome to respond to your classmates.
