2Applying Psychology to My LifeIn the last three weeks, as I progressed through the Introduction to Psychology course, I realized that this science studies many concepts and theories in depth. One of them is how society influences the development of our useful life. Social development is based on the changes we face during our development process, our experiences in life and how they interfere with our relationship with the outside world. Society is constantly changing, and this fact sometimes affects us as people. Social changes have affected me as a person in various aspects such as my choice of food, my opinion about homosexuality, my personality, my choice of work,my experience in social networks and my attitude towards sexual act. Social changes have shaped my personality, my motivations, and my insecurities.Social Changes in Life-Span DevelopmentMy choice of foodIn adolescence as in adulthood, it is important to accept and fit in with the standards promoted by society. Social changes have drastically affected my life, as have my food choices. I have always been motivated to look good and feel within the beauty standards of society. This fact affects my food choices, because sometimes, in order to reach my goals quickly, the foods I choose will make me lose weight, but will not give me the nutrients and protein needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle. “Usually, we are motivated by a combination of internal needs and external incentives.” (Coon et al., 2022).
3My opinion on homosexuality“The environment ("nurture") refers to the sum of all external conditions that affect a person.
