6. On the one hand this slide is amusing, on the other it illustrates something deeply disturbing about human beings. a. What is the paradox of adaptability and how does it link to this photo? b. Describe each of Milgram’s five mechanisms for coping with urban overload and describe at least one type of evidence for it from Milgram’s paper or lecture. c. Apart from Milgram’s analysis, what are three different research examples of the human costs of adaptation [costs of coping] to environmental stressors? Explain for each example how/ why it illustrates the costs of adaptation. d. Take one of the findings from reading or lecture illustrating the central importance of mastery or control to human beings. Extend this finding hypothetically to illustrate a potential cost of the human maintenance of control/mastery in interacting with the environment. 7. a. In contrast to the metaphor that the eye is like a camera, we know that perception is primarily an active, constructive process. Provide three different types of evidence to support this claim from reading and lecture (e.g. one type of evidence would be schemata). Explain why each one of your three types of evidence supports the constructivist perspective. b. Fill in the table below with hypothetical data on memory for pictures of two games.
