PSYCH 221, Feb. 6, 2008, Directions for paper 1 Use the information presented in the yes and/or the no sides of Issue # 6 on Positive Illusions in Taking Sides to answer two or more of the following items. I encourage you to also use a couple of other sources. Keep the paper length between 2-3 pages. 1. In what ways is it helpful to our physical and mental health as well as social interactions to be self-enhancing? In what ways is it more beneficial to hold accurate self views? How can holding positive self-illusions be harmful? 2. How could psychologists encourage us to be realistic or to be self- enhancing? 3. Do you have positive illusions or accurate views of yourself? How are your self views beneficial or not to your overall functioning and to your interactions with others? 4. How would you redesign the studies presented by Taylor and Brown, so that they better addresses the research methodology criticisms raised by Colvin, Block, and Funder? How would you change the operational definitions in the studies to address Colvin, Block, and Funder’s criticisms?

    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.
