PSYC 221 Personality Theory Essay Quiz
This quiz covers Chapters 14 and 15 of the course textbook:
Friedman, H. S. & Schustack, M. W. (2016). Personality: Classic theories and modern research, 6th Ed. Pearson: Boston.
Essay answers must be more than 3 or 4 brief sentences, but kept within the bounds of a short-answer essay exam (i.e., 2-3 paragraphs). All your writing must be in your own words. Paraphrase (restate what you read) rather than copying material from the course textbook or the Internet. No copying is permitted in this course and doing so will result in zero points on the exam. Answers must be written in narrative, paragraph form. Lists and/or sentence fragments also will not receive points.
1 Review the differing views of hate in the eight aspects of personality. Do any of them overlap? Do any contradict each other? Which ones ring true to you and why?
2. May and Fromm identified different types of love. Can you think of others they missed or some you might eliminate? Is it possible that there is only one type of love and that it is a purer feeling than hate?
3. Take some time to develop an opinion about the question posed in Chapter 15 – Can the eight perspectives be merged? Should they be? Or is there a place for them all?
4. Discuss the possibility and possible outcomes of controlling individual behavior through social engineering.
