Question description

WEEK 4- LECTURE PART 1.ppt  Answer questions based on powerslide attached

1. Tell something about this section of lecture slides that you found most interesting.  It can either be something that you had never thought about before but can relate to (explain how) - OR - something that doesn't match your personal experience and why?

2. Based on the description in the lecture notes, how much “Identity” are you comfortable with on the exterior of your home? Do you want a completely unique home with lots of personality or do you want a more cohesive looking neighborhood?  

3. Would you describe yourself as introverted or extroverted? The book lists the following general characteristics of “home” related to each personality type – explain how these apply to how you describe yourself and do you agree or disagree?

People who have extroverted personalities will:

  • More likely view their homes as being more temporary
  • Prefer a more homogeneous floor plan
  • Have guests and visitors
  • Often possess more mainstream objects
  • View the home as being very open both physically and socially

People who have introverted personalities will:

  • More likely view their homes as safe havens
  • View their homes as being more permanent
  • Prefer a more differentiated floor plan
  • Either have few guests or maintain strong controls over who may visit or stay
  • Contain many artifacts that have strong personal meaning
  • Reflect their individual sense of identity
