Values and Culture

Cultures vary widely in the values to which members adhere. For example, some cultures may highly value personal achievement, where other cultures value religious convictions as a core value. One culture may emphasize the importance of being independent while another culture may focus on the importance of being a supportive group member.As you review the Learning Resources for this Discussion, think about your own culture and the many values you hold dear. Then, think about the other cultures you will read about and why their value systems may be different from your own. How might understanding values and culture help you to develop as a professional and promote a sense of appreciation for others personally?For this Discussion, you will examine how the basic concepts from social psychology i.e., socialization, social roles, social cognition, and social behavior are all influenced by culture.Select two dimensions or values described in this week’s Learning Resources.Then, select two cultures other than your own found in this week’s Learning Resources.Post and briefly define the two dimensions or values you selected. Next, describe and discuss examples of how these two dimensions or values are expressed in the two cultures you selected. In your explanation, make sure to explain how socialization, social roles, social cognition, and social behavior are influenced by culture.Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources and identify current relevant literature to support your work.

Privilege – Anti Racist

Please read the instruction file attached.ALL questions need to be answered thoroughly, clearly and grammatically correct. You are constructing paragraphs ( 4-5 sentences!) not bullet points.

scatter plot

A researcher is interested in investigating the relationship between viewing time (in seconds) and ratings of aesthetic appreciation. Participants are asked to view a painting for as long as they like. Time (in seconds) is measured. After the viewing time, the researcher asks the participants to provide a ‘preference rating’ for the painting on a scale ranging from 1-10. Create a scatter plot depicting the following data:Viewing Time in SecondsPreference Rating1031242475316634114522182399533175146What does the scatter plot suggest about the relationship between viewing time and aesthetic preference? Is it accurate to state that longer viewing times are the result of  greater preference for paintings? Explain. Submit your scatter plot and your answers to the questions to your instructor.

Exclusive for Dr. Mitch

In your unit readings from the Psychological Testing and Assessment text, you read about three sources of error variance that occur in testing and assessment. These include test construction, test administration, and test scoring and interpretation. Additionally, other sources of error may be suspect. You were also introduced to reliability coefficients, which provide information about these sources of error variance on a test (see Table 5-4).The following reliability coefficients were obtained from studies on a new test, THING, purporting to measure a new construct (that is, Something). Alternate forms of the test were also developed and examined in subsequent studies published in the peer-reviewed journals. The alternate test forms were titled THING 1 and THING 2. (Remember to refer back to your Psychological Testing and Assessment text for information about using and interpreting a coefficient of reliability.)Internal consistency reliability coefficient = .92Alternate forms reliability coefficient = .82Test-retest reliability coefficient = .50In your post:Describe what these scores mean.Interpret these results individually in terms of the information they provide on sources of error variance.Synthesize all of these interpretations into a final evaluation about this test’s utility or usefulness.Explain whether these data are acceptable.Explain under what conditions they may not be acceptable and under what conditions, if any, they may be appropriate.

Discussion post due 12-20-17 by noon

Throughout the course, you learned about many different types of research and when and where it would be conducted. Despite all the different methods that psychologists use to gather data and report results, many still consider the field a soft science. Read the article Public Skepticism of Psychology for a description of why psychology might be viewed as a soft science. After reading the article, use information that you have learned in the course to dispute this view. Discuss specific ideas you have learned in the course that illustrate the soundness of psychological research. Next, discuss how you might apply the skills you have learned throughout the course to your career and personal life. Discuss how understanding the course material will help you in your professional and personal life.For this discussion, find a journal article and analyze the results section of the article. Answer the Question …..  Is Psychology a Soft Science?

Reply to:As people age, the body tends to slow down physically and mentally. This varies for everyone, and each person has a different level of “normal” aging. Genetics and a person’s health habits can all play a role in a person’s age. Depression is a normal adult disorder that can develop, for example, people often experience major changes in life in late adulthood. People may retire and are not sure what to do all this time, their routines are often interrupted. However, disorders of cognition, which are rooted in memory and other mental abilities, are more common in later adulthood (Comer & Comer, 2021). These disorders include Delirium, Alzheimer’s Disease, and a handful of other neurocognitive disorders. These disorders differ from normal aging because they are more extreme than simply forgetting your keys or someone you met. For example, Delirium is a major disturbance in the attention and orientation of an environment (Comer & Comer, 2021). This means that individuals will often feel displaced or believe that they are somewhere else, some examples given in the text are someone may think it is morning time in the middle of the night or even believe to be at home when they are at a hospital. Another disorder under disorders of cognition is one most people are aware of, Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common of neurocognitive disorders, which are disorders that impact an individual’s memory, attention, visual perception, planning, decision making, language, and social awareness (Comer & Comer, 2021). Someone who has Alzheimer’s is not impacted by one of these, but it is common to have multiple areas of decline when impacted by this disorder. Some of these effects may seem like normal aging, but as a society, it is important to be aware of symptoms and if we notice something not to brush it off as “just aging”. We should take time to educate ourselves and our loved ones as well as seek help and advice when we notice things. With people we care about it is often difficult to think they are suffering from these disorders.
