Week 5 - Quiz    Question 1  0 / 1 pts  Antisocial personality disorder is different from other personality disorders in what two important ways?  You Answered      The disorder is highly heritable, and it tends to become more prominent with age.     Age of onset is typically in early childhood, and individuals with the disorder typically have very high  intelligence.     Individuals with the disorder typically have more relationships, and the disorder is highly heritable. Correct Answer      Diagnosis is not permitted until age 18, and it tends to remit or become less prominent on its own. The answer can be found in Section 10.2 Types of Personality Disorders, in  Personality   Question 2  1 / 1 pts  How is the criterion of distress met for someone who has very little awareness of their disordered behavior?     The behavior, affect, or cognition attracts the attention of others, who then make the person aware of their  disordered behavior. Correct!      The behavior, affect, or cognition affects others who then experience psychological distress.     The person experiences unexplained somatic symptoms (e.g. chronic headache, stomachache, diarrhea) that are considered manifestations of distress.     The person loses his or her job as a result of the behavior, cognition, or affect, even though they may not  connect the two. The answer can be found in Section 10.1 Defining Personality Disorders, in  Personality   Question 3  0 / 1 pts  What has been the conclusion of research involving the five factor model and the DSM approach for  classifying personality disorders?  You Answered      Due to large differences in the language used to describe disorders in the DSM and the five factor model, a  relationship could not be determined. Correct Answer      The DSM disorders fit very well into the five-factor model.

    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.
