  <p>1_ Joaquin has been assigned a primary research project in his psychology class. He is to observe student behavior during a learning task and attempt to form a(n) ______________. In order to do this, he must be able to describe principles and events, and how they may be related. </p><p> </p><p>theory </p><p>hypothesis </p><p>operational definition </p><p>scientific method </p><p> </p><p>2- The formal operational stage is characteristic of logical, adult thinking. Research has shown that: not all individuals achieve this stage of cognitive development.</p><p> with age all normal adults arrive at this stage. </p><p>formal operational thought is not dependent on the earlier development of object permanence. formal operation thought can develop as early as three years of age. </p><p> </p><p>3_ According to Weber's law:</p><p> </p><p>just noticeable difference is a personal determination rather than a matter of psychophysics. </p><p>just noticeable difference is a constant.</p><p> just noticeable difference can be equated with absolute threshold. </p><p>just noticeable difference is a constant proportion of the intensity of an initial stimulus. </p><p> </p><p>4_ Meditation results in an altered state of consciousness by: </p><p> </p><p>reducing the activity level. </p><p>lowering the heart rate. </p><p>decreasing the use of oxygen. </p><p>refocusing attention. </p><p> </p><p>5_ After the day of the wreck, Yung avoided the corner of 9th and Mulberry. He knew that there was nothing wrong with that particular location, but since the accident he experienced shortness of breath and tightness in his muscles when he drove past the corner. Classical conditioning would explain that: </p><p>the accident was the conditioned response, while the corner had become the conditioned stimulus. the anxiety from an accident is an unconditioned response, while the anxiety suffered at the corner </p><p>after the accident is the conditioned response. the corner is the conditioned response, while the anxiety suffered at the corner after the accident is the unconditioned response. </p><p>the accident is the conditioned stimulus, while the corner after the accident is the unconditioned stimulus. </p><p> </p><p>6_ According to Howard Gardner independent intelligence: </p><p> </p><p>originates at a single site in the brain. </p><p>comes for a different system in the brain. </p><p>originates in the limbic system.</p><p> has connections with the hippocampus. </p><p> </p><p>7_ Jake has broken several school records in track and sees himself as a candidate for the Olympic Games, perhaps a gold metal winner. He dedicates extraordinary amounts of time to practice and conditioning. His strong motivation might well be explained by: </p><p>drive reduction approaches to motivation. </p><p>incentive approaches to motivation.</p><p> arousal approaches to motivation. </p><p>cognitive approaches to motivation.</p><p> </p><p> 8- New technology is a wonderful servant, but the learning curve is often steep. Men often view themselves are more capable of using new technology than women because: </p><p> </p><p>women learn new skills more slowly. </p><p>men generally have a higher estimation of their abilities than women do of their abilities. </p><p>women can use new technology, but they do not know how it works. </p><p>men learn new technical skills faster than women. </p><p> </p><p>9_ Joey is twenty-years-old, but in many ways he seems much younger. He is impatient and egocentric. If you have a hamburger and he is hungry, he might take it off of your plate. He does not seem to appreciate the difference between "mine" and "yours." According to Freudian theory, Joey is operating on the level of the:</p><p> preconscious mind.</p><p> id. </p><p>ego. </p><p>superego. </p><p> </p><p>10_ Alyssa's family had moved in the middle of her junior year in high school. At her old school she was a varsity cheer leader, vice president of the student council, and would have been presented as the school "sweetheart" at homecoming had her family not moved. Now she was a "nobody" in a new school. Alyssa will probably: </p><p> </p><p>attempt to make an "entrance." </p><p>try to "standout" by looking and talking differently than the other girls.</p><p> identify with a group which is quite different than that of the most popular girls in the school. </p><p>be very concerned with what the popular girls are wearing and who they view as their friends and attempt to conform. </p>
