So prejudice is the thinking bad over someone while stereotype Is treating someone badly.
This should be rather easy to find on google scholar, especially with the recent replicability crisis in social psychology. In particular, Bargh and Cesario has a few things to say in 'defense' of priming. You can start with Bargh's article, which is a response to this article by Bower. Cesario's article is here, and for an overview of the whole issue ...
I've come across Lewin's theory of organisational change a lot. It is often presented in introductory courses on organisational behavior, I/O psychology, and organisational change. It is a three stage theory that talks about unfreezing, making a change, and refreezing.
There is the structure called the Fusiform-face area (FFA), which is located in the low tempero-parietal region. In human studies, the FFA has shown to highlight strongly when you look at a human face, as opposed to any other (inanimate) object. This is what the region got its name from. However, it is believed that the FFA is not necessarily a face area (...
I suggest you read about attachment theory. The most common reason for insecurity is a failure to form secure attachments or a traumatic loss of an attachment. This is especially harmful in early childhood. By the way, narcissistic personality disorder is invariably associated (and caused by) severe insecurity.

These terms are defined by the underlying theory of Intelligence. For example: Social Intelligence (SI) comes from a definition by Edward Thorndike in 1920. Emotional Intelligence (EI) (or EQ - Q=Quota) first appeared in a 1964 paper by Michael Beldoch, later by Goleman. Then there is Interpersonal & Intrapersonal Intelligences from Howard Gardner's ...
From a hackers perspective I would recommend to check out a term called "social engineering". This is all about manipulating people in order to get sensitive information. A great book about this is called The Art of Human Hacking
Look for persuasion methods. Read any book written for sales people. They use these methods a lot. Every time when I came across a sales person I bring my shield up because I know for a fact that most of them are well trained in these methods. For them it is a way of living
The relevant section 8.03 in the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct does not employ a proper term. In the literature, »deception/deceptive study/experiment/method(s)« are sometimes used, however not in the sense of a technical term – most often the matter is paraphrased as in »studies that use deception«. The Milgram experiment(s) ...
Although I cannot answer the question on lying, (self-)speech and thinking are intimately linked to each-other, and actually used in UX-design (e.g. Krahmer, 2004). He compared two different approaches of thinking-aloud. In other words, people are perfectly able to verbalize their thoughts and actually do so. One of the approaches he compares is a proposal ...
