This pack of PSY 230 Week 1 Discussion Questions shows the solutions to the following points:
In your own words, describe each of the five basic dispositional traits. Then, select one of the adjective pairs listed in the table for each of the five trait categories in Table 1.2 and describe where you think your personality falls in the spectrum of each adjective pair. For example: Extraversion: Talkative – Quiet; I am generally more talkative than I am quiet. I favor the talkative end of the spectrum. When I am at work, however, I tend to be quieter.
What is one of your dispositional traits? What is one of your characteristic adaptations? Identify one of your dispositional traits and one of your characteristic adaptations. Provide an example of how each influences your behavior. How has your life story changed over time? Explain.
