Unformatted text preview: 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?"
