PSY 200 Quiz 1: Success
Terms in this set (8)
According to this module, two of the best strategies for overcoming procrastination are (a) to create "if - then" cues to trigger action and (b) to just get started by stripping away the emotion associated with the task.
According to this module, adding a minor does not need to entail additional work because, if planned correctly, you can use minor courses to fill electives that you need to graduate.
One recommended tactic for avoiding procrastination is to strip away emotion -- that is, you do not have to "feel like doing it" in order to get it done, you just have to do it.
Based on what you learned in the module, which student is more likely to be productive when preparing for an upcoming test?
Caitlin plans to study each morning after breakfast by testing herself with flashcards.
One anti-procrastination (or productivity) tip is to think of time units in terms of larger chunks -- for example, it is better to think of an upcoming due date as being 1 month away than to think of it as being 30 days away. In a similar manner, it is also better to focus on the big task (e.g., write a 10 page paper) than to get lost in the individual steps (e.g., find articles, outline the sections, write introduction, etc.).
When the readings use the term "superstar psychology students", they are referring to whom?
Students who apply the advice provided to build up accomplishments
