Project #90552 - Psychology Questions

Directions: Now that you have read your text, browsed through chapter notes, and watched appropriate video clips, answer four (4) questions below (you chose). Each of your responses should between 5-10 single-spaced lines.

 

1. What is temperament? Many researchers believe that temperament is consistent (that is relatively unchanging) across the lifespan. What does this mean and what do you think?

1a. How might temperament be used to predict adjustment in children? For example, how might understanding a child's temperament help us predict how he/she would react to the first day of daycare? (see link for more detailed info on temperament) 9 Dimensions of temperament (Links to an external site.)

 

2. What is attachment? Researchers have found that infant attachment patterns are remarkably similar to adult attachment patterns and that these influence adult romantic relationships. Explain this connection.

2a. For example, what kind of a partner would an insecurely attached adult make? See this link for help:https://internal.psychology.illinois.edu/~rcfraley/attachment.htm (Links to an external site.)

 

3. Three-year-old Dimitri frequently takes other children’s toys from them, showing little concern for their feelings, even when they cry. When he does this, his mother tells him to “imagine how other kids feel when they lose their toys. Why is his mother’s comment unlikely to influence behavior? Consider his stage of development according to Piaget. How would you encourage Dimitri to stop behaving this way?

 

4. Consider the parenting styles described in this chapter. Which is the "best, if any?" Why is it dangerous for us to conclude that parenting style "A" leads directly to child outcome "A"?  What else do we need to consider to understand how parenting styles impact children?

 

5. Consider Erikson's concept of generativity in middle adulthood. What is generativity?

5a. How are you or how do you intend to be generative as you go through your life?
