Psychology

1)  First, tell us what a correlation is (you may define this according to your textbook ( see below), but be sure to put this information in quotes and cite the chapter and page number. )

2)  Tell us a little about Dr. Hirsch's research.  What did he do?  What did he find?  Why might Dr. Hirsch's research be important?

3) Based on what you know about correlations, what problems do you see with Dr. Hirsch's research? 

4) Do the websites provide a basis for asserting that your personality determines your ice cream preference?

Note that the articles identify Dr. Hirsch as a psychiatrist and a neurologist, not a psychologist.


First look in the chapter on Psychological Science ( http://www.saylor.org/site/textbooks/Introduction%20to%20Psychology.pdf )  (chapter 2, section 2.2), and review the section on Correlational Research: Seeking Relationships Among Variables

 This will give you more information about the nature of correlations and why we have to be careful with them.

Then,  take a look at the following URLs:

3) What does Socrates mean by wisdom?  Do you agree with his view? Why or why not?  Do you find his view at all self-contradictory?  How would him having wisdom in this sense enable others to achieve wisdom?  Socrates chooses to die in prison rather than escape.  What is his reasoning for doing so?  Do you agree with it?  Why or why not?

Give an example of a time when you had  to solve a problem. Explain what the problem was and how you tried to solve it.

Did your motivation for acting ground your reasons for what you did or did your reasoning for what you did motivate your actions? Can we have reasons for actions independent of prior motivations? If so, what are examples? If not, why not?
