ORDER NOW FOR AN ORIGINAL PAPER:Assignment: Distinctiveness Decision Making

1.  Jane is trying to decide whether she should marry Jim.  She sits down with a piece of paper and makes a list of all the positive aspects about marrying Jim, and then a list of all the negative aspects.  After looking at both lists, she can see that the good things outweigh the bad.  So, she calls Jim up and says, “OK, let’s set a date for the wedding!”  Jane’s way of making up her mind is an example of:

a.         felicific calculus

b.         distinctiveness decision making

c.          decisional framing

d.         the contrast effect

Why is this the best answer?

2.  In an experiment by Kenrick and Gutierres, male college students were asked to evaluate a potential blind date before or after watching the television show “Charlie’s Angels” (which features three glamorous actresses).  How did those who gave their ratings of the blind date after the viewing the show compare to subjects who rated the blind date before watching the show.  To what factor was this difference attributed?

3.  From Article #13 in Readings About the Social Animal, in demonstrating the “region-ß paradox,” what do Gilbert and his colleagues suggest about people’s willingness to endure painful medical procedures?

4.  It’s New Year’s Eve, and you’ve been invited to a large party where there will be lots of people you’ve never met before.  When you arrive, the person hosting the party hands you a blue party hat to wear and you put it on.  As you mingle through the crowd, you notice that some people are wearing blue hats like yours, and other people are wearing green party hats.  By the end of the evening, you realize you have spent most of your time with people wearing blue hats.  Somehow, they just seemed to be nicer people-they even dance better than those other people wearing green hats.  Moreover, a guy with a green hat bumped into you at one point during the evening and spilled your drink!  Given your knowledge of social cognition (and despite the somewhat far-fetched nature of this scenario), how could you explain your perceptions and judgments?

5.  How do cognitive biases involving the self contribute to the goal of maintaining and enhancing our view of ourselves?  Of what value are such biases, and what are the potential consequences of not having them?  Describe two self-biases, providing research evidence that demonstrates their effects.

: An accurate assessment is essential for effective   intervention: The ABC Model of Crisis Intervention.
It is often said that Psychology is the science of understanding human   behavior, and Counseling is the art of helping others understand their   behavior. A person’s response to a crisis situation is idiosyncratic—not all   people have the same response. The response is unique to the individual with   how they perceived their crisis situation. Two sisters can have completely   different responses to the loss of a brother in active duty while completing   a tour in a combat zone. It is the therapist’s responsibility to try to see   the crisis situation from the client’s perspective. Although this can be   challenging, the success of such a goal is largely influenced by an effective   assessment. The ABC Model (Kanel, 2015) identifies 3 areas of assessment that   are essential when completing an initial interview and providing ongoing   treatment/interventions. What are these 3 categories? Define each category.   Which category is the most important? You can only pick 1 and you must   support your argument with professional sources.
Post should be at least 250 words required to use at least 2 peer-reviewed sources for post. Current APA formatting is required for all citations.
