Social cognition is a broad term that describes a focus on the way perceivers encode, process, remember, and use information in social contexts in order to make sense of other people's behavior (where a social context is defined as any real or imagined scenario including reference to self or others).
Social cognition is a sub-topic of social psychology that focuses on how people process, store, and apply information about other people and social situations. It focuses on the role that cognitive processes play in our social interactions. The way we think about others plays a major role in how we think, feel, and interact with the world around us.
