05.08 Final Project Psychology
Self concept is is an individual's knowledge about him or herself. It is a more specific self judgment of our personal abilities and weaknesses. A good time I try to apply self-concept is when I don’t pass something or do it correctly. It helps me remember that there may be something I’m not good at but that’s no worries since I can be plenty good at other things. Self-concept doesn’t shatter as easy as self-esteem. And it is more rational. I can apply this in order to keep my self-esteem up. It can help me from thinking that I’m no good when it comes to doing things, it can remind me I’m just good at different things.
With adolescence comes the emotional roller coaster, the time in life when most try to find out who they are, what they are like, and the developing of secondary sex characteristics. A common emotional rollercoaster that teenagers face is the feeling that they don’t belong, and that their parents don’t understand. Teenagers face great hormonal changes and with bullies they can become depressed or bullies themselves. Teens feel like they don’t fit in, and feel they can’t seem to find people who share the same interests or have much in common with. As teenagers they also feel that parents don’t understand what they are going through since everything is “different” and that only other teens understand. Many problems could be easily fixed or resolved if some youth would openly talk to their parents about these issues. The development of secondary sex characteristics happens when the youth goes through puberty. Also teens try to find out who they are through roles in society, like being a scientist or being a lawyer.
Stress: The giver of gray hairs
Stress: Stress is a natural part of life. Even while reading a scenario with a stressful situation, you might feel your body feeling a bit of stress. That was because stress is a psychophysiological reaction to life events. That means that its impact is felt by both the mind and body. Stress was made to protect people. It sends them into fight or flight mode. Let’s say you lived when large animals roamed, like as if you were a caveman and a mammoth was coming your way, your stress would kick in and it would signal your body to fight or flight, probably flight in this situation to stay protected. Though now a days it doesn’t work that way. Since our lifes are not like that, the stress bothers us. Some good ways to calm down the stress is to, take deep breaths, walk away from the situation for a while, talk to someone about it, share a laugh with someone and many other ways. There is also two basic kinds of stress, distress and you stress. Distress is when you’re worried or bothered, like when in a car accident you are distressed though when looking forward to that new internship at a company its you stress, you are nervous but mostly excited.
Classical conditioning: Conditioning is the way we learned based upon association between two events by repeated exposure. Classical conditioning is a method of conditioning in which associations are made between a natural stimulus and a learned, neutral stimulus. The different components of classical conditioning that Ivan Pavlov found were, Unconditioned stimulus (UCS) A stimulus that naturally or automatically triggers a response, Unconditioned response (UCR) The unlearned naturally occurring response, Neutral stimulus (NS) The object with which the experimenter is trying to get a response, Conditioned stimulus (CS) The neutral stimulus becomes the conditioned stimulus, (it becomes the CS once it is recognized for its purpose, like the bell meaning its food time) Conditioned response (CR) A response to a stimulus that is brought about by learning. The UCR becomes the CR. A way you could use this in real life is just like the example used in the lesson, you could use classical conditioning in order to train your dog that it is food time.
Classical conditioning: an efficient way to teach.
Anxiety: A natural part of life.
You can experience it from math class exams, a solo concert, a sport match, stressful events produce physical and emotional symptoms. Anxiety disorders are marked by distressing, persistent anxiety or maladaptive behaviors that reduce anxiety. The symptoms of anxiety are: Restlessness, excess energy, Sleeplessness, Racing heartbeat, Difficulty breathing, chest tightness, Weight loss or weight gain, Dizziness, headaches, lightheaded, Inability to concentrate, brain fog, Feeling irritable, on edge, and panicky. According to DSM guidelines, individuals who experience at least three of the symptoms from the list unrelated to a specific event may be diagnosed with a Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
