  1. a 5. how much can we learn in 1 to 2 weeks?
    6. limited by what we can do to someone
    ex. rape study
  2. b process of constructing, testing, and refining theories through systematic observation
  3. c 1. cannot est. causality
    2. third variable problem
    ex. trying to make a correlation between rapes committed and the amount of ice cream sold could be affected by the third variable of heat

    ex. helping behaviors

5 True/False questions

  1. Independent VariableDV (variable y) - variable that is measured and usually follows the IV
    ex. helping behaviors


  2. External Validityone problem with the experimental method - the extent to which we can say the IV is affecting the DV - experiments are high on this


  3. Correlational Method1. high on the external validity
    2. fewer ethical concerns
    3. allows us to look at variables we can't manipulate


  4. Ethicsone problem with the experimental method - IRB's go over every study to make sure we are not violating participants rights


  5. Traitswords that we use to describe someone - use them to understand and predict behavior; they need to be stable across time and situations in order for the characteristic to be considered a personality trait - internal cause of behavior and descriptive summaries
