PSYC 101 STUDY GUIDE – EXAM 1 On the lighter side… DEDUCTIVE REASONING Taking a well-earned break from the detective business, Sherlock Holmes and Watson were on a  camping/hiking trip. They had gone to bed and were lying there looking up at the sky.  Holmes said, "Watson, look up. What do you see?" "Well, I see thousands of stars." "And what does that mean to you?" "Well, I suppose it means that of all the planets and suns and moons in the universe, that we are truly  the one most blessed with the reason to deduce theorems to make our way in this world of criminal  enterprises and blind greed. It means that we are truly small in the eyes of God but struggle each day  to be worthy of the senses and spirit we have been blessed with. And, I suppose, at the very least, in  the meteorological sense, it means that it is most likely that we will have another nice day tomorrow.  What does it mean to you, Holmes?" "To me, it means someone has stolen our tent." PSYCHIATRIC HOTLINE Welcome to the Psychiatric Hotline. If you are  obsessive-compulsive, please press 1 repeatedly. If you are  co-dependent, please ask someone to press 2. If you have  multiple personalities, please press 3, 4, 5, and 6. If you are  paranoid-delusional, we know who you are and what you want. Just  stay on the line so we can trace the call. If you are  schizophrenic, listen carefully and a little voice will tell you which  number to press. If you are  depressed, it doesn't matter which number you press. No one will  answer. If you are  delusional and occasionally hallucinate, please be aware that the  thing you are holding on the side of your head is alive and about to  bite off your ear.

    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.
