Psychology 101 Topic Multi-Tasking Liberty University Online

...Donna Graves PSYC 101 Discussion Board 2 Can You Multi-Task? My thoughts on multi-tasking are complex. I can multi-task in some situations and circumstances and then some times I cannot. For example, at work in the classroom I can hear several children speaking at the same time and get almost all of my responses correct. However when I am trying to accomplish something at my desk, it is best for me to focus on one thing at a time. The same is true when I am at home trying to get multiple things done at the same time. The only task that can be done while doing chores is washing clothes. You only have to stop to change the clothes from the washing machine to the dryer. When Driving…. When I am driving you may see me doing several things but nothing major. I know you really shouldn’t do anything while driving. Although there are times when I may need to talk on the phone, if so, I use speaker phone. I may eat crackers or chips while driving but normally I eat in. When Studying… When I am studying I have to be focused. If I have the TV on, I am easily distracted. I can play music at times in the background and stay focused. It has to be soft music though, but I cannot look at my phone. If I look at Facebook or Instagram I lose sight of what I am studying. I really have to limit what I am doing while studying. If I cook while studying, my food might be burned. Activity on pg.139…. During this activity, I found just what I said to be true, I really cannot do......

Ant 101

...Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis ANT 101 July 19, 2013 The Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis theorizes that language is not just voicing something, but it is a shaper of ideas which basically means that language can determine our perceptions, thoughts, and behaviors in reality. Edward Sapir developed and published this hypothesis in the 1920’s. In 1956, Benjamin Lee Whorf published his work developing this hypothesis based on his work using the Hopi and English languages. Both of the ideas are commonly known as the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis and also commonly referred to as linguistic relativity. The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis asserted the influence of language on thought and perception. The hypothesis implies that speakers of different languages think and perceive reality in different ways and that each language has its own worldview. This paper will entail how my objective reality might have been shaped by my current language and also how might my reality be different if I grew up speaking another language. For Sapir, language does not reflect reality but actually shapes it to a large extent. Sapir believes that language and behavior equally influence each other. The world cannot exist objectively or in a manner that separates human interactions from cultural linguistic expression but since the perception of reality is influenced by our linguistic habits, it follows that language plays an important role in the process of thought. He argues that linguistic systems determine perceptions of......

Cognitive Psychology 101

...What is Cognitive Psychology? Basically, it studies human cognitive processes - acquiring, storing, transforming and using knowledge to make decisions. From all of the lessons we tackled in this class, I consider memory as the most important. If you notice my concept map, I used the term memory as a link with all the other terms we discussed in COGPSYC. It is because for me, everything is linked to it and impossible without it. We cannot learn without memory; we cannot solve problems without memory; and we cannot have emotions without memory. It starts with the concept of schema. It is said that schema is where information is organized to form concepts using our mental network (Woolfolk, 2007). It acts as a baseline where all the new information a person gets from the external stimuli is organized. This process of organizing is then adapted until it balances with the other cognitive schemas. Memory can be classified into three categories: sensory, short-term, and long term (Baddeley, 2004). In the process of sensory memory, a person see, hear or touch the information using his attention and perception from the external stimuli. From that, the information which is successfully monitored is then transferred into the short term memory. Information in short-term memory needs to be rehearsed. This is called maintenance rehearsal which involves process of repeatedly verbalizing or thinking over specific information (Craik & Lockhart, 1972). One needs to repeat words or......

...IT 101-002 September 22, 2013 IT News Report Assignment 1 Article Summary The article, “The iPhone 5s fingerprint reader: what you need to know”, explains how the fingerprint sensor works to its readers. For the first time, Apple has introduced a new technology called the “Touch ID” in its iPhone 5s. Basically, this feature enhances the security for the phone’s owner, where they no longer have to solely rely on entering a passcode to access their phone. The new iPhone 5s makes use of a capacitance fingerprint reader, which measures and senses the user’s fingerprint and further forms an image. This sensor has been placed in the “home” button of the phone. Eventually, the iPhone does not store the user’s fingerprint but instead runs a scan every time a finger is placed on the sensor. The emergence of this new technology does not mean that passcodes will no longer be used. Passcode is a must! If the sensor breaks or something happens to your finger, you need a way to get back into your phone. Other Apple services, such as iCloud or iTunes, will still require passwords, as fingerprint readers cannot always be used for them. However, purchases can be made using the Touch ID. According to Apple, this new technology will prove to be exciting to its users. A simple four-digit passcode will no longer always need to be used to get into your phone. Touch ID along with the use of a passcode will prove to be more secure for the iPhone user. Analysis Day by day, new advancements in...

Forensic Psychology 101

...investigative police work, from the police interrogation to the police line-up. Both of these areas have prospered greatly from psychological research. Outside of the "front-end" operations of police work there is numerous opportunities for the application of forensic psychology. In the court system, Forensic Psychologists are frequently used for both criminal and civil cases. In the criminal realm, the forensic psychologist is often asked to assess competency. Competency assessments can serve a number of purposes. First, a defendant can be assessed for the ability to stand trial and/or make legal decisions on their own behalf. These types of decision have been frequent in the news. These evaluations are carried out when the defendant appears to suffer from a mental defect, such as an acute psychiatric disorder (i.e., scizophrenia) or a mental disability (i.e., mental retardation). Secondly, Psychologists may also be asked to make an evaluation regarding the defendant's mental state at the time of the offense. The entire "not guilty by reason of insanity" defense relies on the psychological evaluation of a defendant's inability to form criminal intent. Frequently, people forget about the applications of forensic psychology to civil law. Often a forensic psychologist is asked to make evaluations of defendants or plaintiff’s disability or level of trauma. From these evaluations the court can decide whether compensatory damages should be provided. Civil-Forensic......

...Psychology 101 When I chose to tale a psychology class, I had no idea of the journey I was about to embark. Or the things I would learn about myself and others. If you asked me what psychology means to me, I would respond with the study of the mind, its processes, and behaviors. But that answer is only the tip of the iceberg and psychology is so much more. Yes, it has to do with the mind and the brain, but there are more disciplines that make up psychology. These disciplines are explained more in detail through theories. Developmental theories introduce principles that affect individual’s development (Gerrig & Zimbardo, 2010). Psychoanalytical theories study age-related changes that result from conflicts at certain stages of life (Gerrig & Zimbardo, 2010). Cognitive theories study a person’s action in response to the environment and the changes it brings. Learning theories believe the environment shapes an individual. Biological theories focus more on the body’s structure and composition to explain behavior and mental processes (Gerrig & Zimbardo, 2010). This includes explaining our senses and perception of how we take in the world around us. Intelligence is also studied and offers some insight that each individual is unique in their abilities and talents. Memory allows us to store, retrieve and remember experiences and events. Emotions are the links between our mind and body processes. Personality theories suggest each individual different from the next with......

...Understanding self Heather Hibbs PSY 101 Introduction to Psychology Instructor Cosma April 24, 2016 For this paper, I chose to write about my own childhood. To be honest, I grew up like any average kid, and like most, I had my own individual personality, that which will be discussed later on whether my personality is because of nature or nurture, or what people say the biggest debate in human history. I was born on April 3, 1976 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which I still reside to this day. I was the second child born, of two daughters, of which my sister is four years older than myself. I grew up in a town considered still to be Pittsburgh but was called Homewood, nowadays is a very unsafe area, or what is called the “ghetto”. My childhood was fairly normal, during the summer months we were constantly playing outside, whether it was riding bikes, playing kick ball or even hide and go seek. Back then, neighborhoods were safer, so there really was not any worrying from our parents, and when it was time to go in, all they had to do was call our names. Personally, I was more of the “tom boy” type so I had Matchbox cars and a basketball, etc. I most definitely did not have dolls, unlike my sister who was into playing with dolls and reading books. As I look back, my parents did not encourage many activities other than go play outside. Unless of course I was helping my dad work on the car. Adolescence to me seemed pretty easy going. I kind of turned......
