1.2 Discuss the relationship between language and thought.

The hypothesis of linguistic determinism is generally considered to be false, because there is no proof language causes thought. However, evidence supporting the “softer” theory of linguistic relativityis found in correlative studies.

  • linguistic relativity
  • Prompt: p. 166

What are some examples of words in English that could lead to gender-stereotyped thinking?

  • What area of our brain has increased activity in response to the pain of ostracism?

    • evolutionary perspective,
    • drive-reduction theory, and
    • arousal theory explain our affiliation needs?

2.4 Discuss other ways in which humans and non-human animals are motivated.

perspectives on motivation
Perspectives on Motivation

Four perspectives used to explain motivation include the following:

Instinct Theory (replaced by the evolutionary perspective)

Drive-Reduction Theory

Arousal Theory

Hierarchy of Motives




(eating, drinking)


(e.g., for

food, water)


(hunger, thirst)

  • Drive-Reduction Theory
    • the idea that a physiological need creates an aroused tension state (a drive) that motivates an organism to satisfy the need
optimum arousal
Optimum Arousal

Human motivation aims to seek optimum levels of arousal, not to eliminate it. Young monkeys and children are known to explore the environment in the absence of a need-based drive.

p. 506 What is the brains shortcut for emotions?

While on a hike through the woods, you jump in fear at the sound of rustling brushes. When you realize it was just the wind, you chuckle at your fear.

How would Lazarus’ theory about dual processing dual processing of emotions explain your emotional reactions?

physiological differences
Physiological Differences

Physical responses, like finger temperature and movement of facial muscles, change during fear, rage, and joy.

The amygdala shows differences in activation during the emotions of anger and rage. Activity of the left hemisphere (happy) is different from the right (depressed) for emotions.
