PSYC 201 NOTES 3/6/08 WHAT ARE ADAPTIVE WAYS TO REACT TO GOOD AND BAD EVENTS? Which factors matter most? o A person’s genes that they get from their parents o A person’s early experiences in childhood o A person’s experiences in failures/successes o A person’s approach to life and how he or she chooses to react to both good and bad events Your (as a class) answer: o A person’s approach to life and how he or she chooses to react to both good and bad events. Adaptive reactions to life events o Good events: Gratitude o Bad events: Forgiveness Question: How do we make time for gratitude in our lives? Ritualization and Self-Regulation (Baumeister, Bratslavsky, Muraven, & Tice 1999) o Chocolate vs. radishes vs. choice Unsolvable task- the radish group gave up around 8 minutes. The chocolate and no rules groups, on the other hand, both lasted closer to 20 minutes. We have a limited amount of self-control Radish group exhausted this resource in choosing radishes over chocolate. o We want to make gratitude a habit so it takes as little self-control as brushing your teeth Question: Does ritualization gratitude reduce its effectiveness?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
