Thomas McGuirePsychology Sec 00509/4/18Essay Questions:Chapter 1:Jack is a second-grade student.During class he seems to be uninterested and constantlydisrupts the class by throwing objects at other students.Through one perspective, Jack is being acompletely normal boy.Boys typically like to be active and outdoors and the environment he isin 5 days a week can be inhibiting to his natural behavior. This relates to humanistic psychology.Long term, this might limit his growth potential but at the same time condition him somewhat tothe “school” environment.Through another perspective, this could be a much deeperpsychological desire for attention and love.Jack might not be receiving the attention and love ayounger person requires when they are of a younger age.This may even be a subconsciousreaction to what happens at home, which means he doesn’t even realize why he’s doing it.Thiscorrelates with the Freudian response which says these processes may affect behavior later inlife.Another Freudian style take on the situation would be that Jack is actually subconsciouslymimicking a behavior that he is exposed to while at home.
