myself and vice versa. Maybe my sisters and I are the exception to the rule but I know my older sister and I are good. It could be because we know that our mother was a paranoid schizophrenicand unmedicated (we did not know that at the time). I cannot remember my high school years asa lot of my memory is gone but what I do know about my childhood and the abuse did not have anegative effect on how I treated my son and raised him. Doing just the opposite of what
happened to me as I wanted my son to grow up never having to worry if he said the wrong thing that it would lead to major problems with me.What research design(s) did Rogers use in his studies?The most notable design in our text was the Q-Sort technique (Cervone & Pervin, 2016, p. 152) which to me seems very simplistic but effective and most of all not stressful, in my opinion. You have the fixed answers and flexible answers albeit the flexible answers only meant you could choose from the fixed set of answers. Sounds like you could be going in circles but in reality, the test was easier as you were just putting the cards into descriptions of yourself (e.g. least/most characteristic of me). They would run this test twice and the second time to me sounds like they were looking to the participants to rate how they would like their “ideal self” to be and compare the results. I think that would be helpful for a therapist in guiding a patient to self-actualization. As for the design method, I think this would follow under correlation as they are comparing the first Q-Sort to the second.Do you think Rogers conducted his research ethically? Why or why not?
