This essay will compare and contrast two theories of romantic attachment/approaches, the interpersonal theory of attraction which are the positive feelings and attitudes towards another individual and the attachment theory which focuses on how the emotional bond between an infant and their caregiver affect the individual when they are an adult and how this may be applied to romantic attachment. It will also evaluate the strengths and limitations of each theory with reference to examples and scholarly articles. This essay will also argue that both theories are useful explanations of romantic attachment/attraction. There are also three other theories of interpersonal attraction; social exchange theory, evolutionary theory and the socio-cultural

Stimulus Control—using reminders and cues that encourage healthy behavior as substitutes for those that encourage the unhealthy behavior. Decisional balance This core construct "reflects the individual's relative weighing of the pros and cons of changing." Decision making was conceptualized by Janis and Mann as a "decisional balance sheet" of comparative potential gains and losses." Decisional balance measures, the pros and the cons, have become critical constructs in the transtheoretical model. The pros and cons combine to form a decisional "balance sheet" of comparative potential gains and losses.
I propose the Marshfield Customer Service Biodata Questionnaire and the personality exam. The biodata exam proved relatively high correlation with citizenship, performance, and promotion potential. The questionnaire showed the pairing of life experiences and job performance were related. The biodata test can help managers base their employment strategies on individual candidates’ experiences and assist in determining previous experiences which can serve as a tool to analyze candidates’ communication abilities. The personality test allows managers to choose candidates based on how well they scored in extraverted and conscientious portions.
“The best writing about relationships is likely to deal with psychological and emotional growth.” How far do you agree with this statement? In your response you should comment on and analyse the connections and comparisons between at least two texts you have studied. Relationships are founded on growth. Growth can come in many forms and can often define a relationship. For example, growth of intimacy and trust makes for a functional relationship, however, growth of resentment can prove to be destructive for a relationship.
The Civil Partnership and Certain Rights and Obligation of Co-Habitants Act 2010 came into force on the 1st of January 2011. This Act allowed for the registration of same sex couples in civil partnership, it laid down the requirements for a partnership it also set down the ways for dissolution, maintenance and succession rights. There was also a redress scheme put in place for co-habitees. In order to critique these rights it is necessary to compare and contrast those rights with the marital couple. Even though it is one act it covers two different groups of individuals.
The literature states that the stronger the intention, the higher the likelihood a particular performance will follow (Ajzen, 1991). According to the TPB, intention is determined by a person’s attitudes towards behavior, subjective norm, and perceived behavioral control (Ajzen, 2002). Subjective norms refers to societal factors associated with engaging in a behavior (Ajzen, 1991). Furthermore, perceived behavioral control is defined “perceived ease or difficulty of performing the behavior and it is assumed to reflect past experience as well as anticipated impediments and obstacles” (Ajzen, 1991, p. 188). An individual’s attitude towards a behavior is an important determinant in the TPB because behavior change is likely to occur if it is viewed in a positive
I took the Disability IAT and Gender Career IAT, for I am pursing a bachelor in special education, and I wanted to confirm if I stereotyped women by associating them to family instead of career. For the Disability IAT I was surprised to find out that have a slight preference for abled persons over disabled persons. Based on the results of this IAT test, I would say that I am in the acceptance phase of the DMIS because I have the ability to recognize and appreciate the cultural difference between abled persons and disabled persons in my own terms, yet with a subtle preference for abled persons. I disagree with the results because I feel like I have subtle preference for disabled persons when it comes to helping them over the abled persons. I feel like disable
A family is not defined or determined by blood or relations, legal documents or last names. One is called a family when all members receive and give equal love to each other regardless the parent’s sexual orientation. Gay adoption gives no disadvantage at any cause to children but, in the contrary, allows them to have a family they long for. Adoption is a process whereby a person assumes the parenting of another from that person’s legal or biological parents or parent. After this procedure, it allows them to handover all rights and responsibilities from the real or biological parents.
Cardinal data such as neural firing rates can be obtained from brain scans during decision-making tasks, which allows us to understand the subjective valuation of the choice made by the subject. Comparing the neuron firing rates in different subjects will allow us to compare the valuations in different subjects as well. Thus, what we get is more than how useful the choice is to the subject, but rather, how much the subject values that choice. In other words, it shows how much welfare the subject gets from making that choice. (This is more than just happiness, as a valuation will also include utility and other factors as well.
Using a scale, you’ll assign “happiness units” (Manias, et al, 2013) for each option based upon the affected people. After you’ve assigned happiness units to each option, you multiply that number by the determined amount of people the option affects coming up with a total number of happiness units for each option, which in turn is calculated into net utility to determine the highest amount of happiness units for each option. Using Act Utilitarianism towards ethical decisions allows a person to figure out the morally right decision based upon reason, logic, and common sense, where the deciding factor comes from the highest total of happiness units (Manias, et al,
A survey can be used to investigate the characteristics, behaviors, or opinions of a group of people. Surveys are standardized to ensure that they have reliability and validity. Standardization is also important so that the results can be generalized to the larger population. One of the largest benefits of using a survey in psychological research is that they allow researchers to gather
