in the 1960s, robert abelson and his colleagues investigated the relationship between social learning and learning in animal and insect learning research. they found that the more a learner was exposed to a stimulus during an encounter, the more likely it was to learn that stimulus. this principle is now called the encounter effect, and it is used to explain many animal behaviors such as imprinting, observational learning, and conditioning. when individuals interact with one another, they form impressions that may be used to identify and categorize other people. a person who uses and interprets social cues may be called a social information processor. the term social intelligence, sometimes used as an umbrella term for social cognition, is intended to encompass the ability to understand and interpret social cues as well as to learn from social interactions. this term is used to define the ability to analyze and understand the social contexts of situations and to make decisions based on these social cues. social intelligence is the product of the interaction between an individual and the social environment social intelligence includes two types of abilities: social perception and social knowledge. social perception includes the ability to detect and understand social cues. this ability includes the ability to read facial expression, body language, and verbal and nonverbal communication. it also includes the ability to attend to the social environment, to process and analyze information from social cues, and to interpret these cues. social knowledge includes the ability to understand social interaction and to use that understanding to make decisions, such as choosing a career, selecting a mate, or negotiating with another. a person with social knowledge is also able to use that knowledge to manipulate and control others.
