Arthur L. Stone PSYC305 Assignment #4 Americans Live to Work 1. I am not too much surprised to find that the United States averages more hours worked within a given period of time than do European countries. In the U.S., working more hours what many people see as a key to obtaining a particular social status. The “American Dream” includes advancement and social mobility based on hard work, in the U.S. In contrast, leisure seems to be more of a building-block to obtaining happiness. 2. I think that U.S. employees are led by the demands of internal/external worth, physiological needs, and social status. Also, the “American Dream” is a very fragile state to attain. To the common American employee, it entails arriving to work early and leaving late, adding to or creating an idea that causes change, setting goals and accomplishing them, and springing up in social status to be recognized as an achiever among peers. Many Americans have this dream – to work toward a better life than the one experienced, now.

    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.
