Study Guide for PSY355 – Exam #2 The topics below are likely to be included in the exam. You should know the material well enough to not only define each phenomenon, but also apply what is known about it to a new situation.

Note the following change: Exam #2 is now worth 50 points (and thus will include 50 multiple-choice questions), instead of 60 as mentioned in the syllabus. 1) What is self-enhancement? How does the self-serving bias help people enhance the self? 2) Know the self-enhancement strategies discussed in the book and in class. 3) Do East Asians really self-enhance less than North Americans? What are some alternative explanations for this finding? (see pgs. 235-236) 4) What is predestination? How does it relate to self-enhancement? 5) What is self-improvement? How does it relate to the concept of “face”? How does it relate to prevention and promotion orientations toward losses and gains? 6) What level of universality characterizes self-enhancement/self-improvement? (NOTE: the answer is the same for both motivations) 7) Know the methodology and results of the Sanchez-Burks (2002) study related to religion and achievement (see pgs. 248-250) 8) What do entity and incremental theories of the world have to do with agency? 9)
