Unformatted text preview: PSYCHOLOGY OF PERSONALITY STUDY GUIDE MIDTERM 1, DR. ASHLYN Note: In general, for everything that is on the study guides try to learn everything mentioned in the assigned readings and covered in class for each of the topics. At some point, if I do too much emailing/discussing with students, answering questions that start off with, "What do you mean by ?" I end up telling you part or all of the answer to the question(s) on the exam that cover that concept. In the past I've had students (even some working together) trying to play a version of 20 questions with as many of the concepts listed on the study guide as possible in an attempt to basically get answers ahead of time (don’t worry, they weren’t successful). Because that's obviously not fair, especially for a class that is graded on a curve in order to help everyone, I have to curtail answering specific questions about the concepts in the study guide. I don’t mean it to sound harsh, but in essence, I’m giving you some pretty specific ideas about most of the questions on each of the exams including the final, which is WAY more than most professors give you, I can’t give you the actual exam questions ahead of time. Examples of Instructor’s question style (none of these will be on the actual exam): 1. The individual uniqueness level of personality analysis looks at how A) every human is like all others. B) every human is like some others. C) every human is like no others. D) none of the above Ans: C 2. When different domains of knowledge contradict one another, we can conclude that A) the most recent domains are most correct. B) the more historical domains are most correct. C) none of the domains is correct. D) none of the above Ans: D 3. Of the different ways to collect self-report data, which is most common? A) interviews B) periodic reports C) questionnaires D) experience sampling Ans: C 4. Which of the following is not a limitation of physiological data? A) it usually requires an artificial setting B) participants may not construe the testing situation as the researchers do C) it is easy to fake desirable responses D) all of the above are limitations of physiological data Ans: C 5. Freud used the metaphor of A) a riverboat B) an iceberg C) a mime D) a thunderstorm to describe the three parts of the mind Ans: B 6. prevents unacceptable thoughts or urges from reaching consciousness. A) Repression B) Denial C) Projection D) all of the above Ans: D 7. A good outcome of the stage is that a child feels a sense of mastery and control.
