Are You Experiencing Negative Sentiment Override (Nso)? - Quiz

The Gottmans are the most prominent researchers regarding Negative Sentiment Override and they've conducted a series of studies regarding this particular aspect. When there's NSO, roses are left to die and the energy which would've been used to water them would be replaced by the persistent and deeply frustrating feeling of being trapped with a oneso partner in a void that appears to be endless. This quiz would help to know what Negative Sentiment Override means as well as how to identify it.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    When does NSO occur?

    • A.

      When one of the partners isn't committed

    • B.

      When trust has been broken

    • C.

      When divorce has become an option

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. When trust has been broken
    Explanation
    NSO, or Non-Sexual Occurrence, refers to a situation in a relationship where one or both partners engage in intimate activities with someone outside the relationship without involving sexual intercourse. The correct answer, "When trust has been broken," aligns with the concept of NSO as it implies that the breach of trust is a crucial factor leading to such occurrences. The other options, "When one of the partners isn't committed" and "When divorce has become an option," may be contributing factors but do not directly address the core aspect of trust being broken.

  • 3. 

    According to Dr. Gottman, not all problems can be resolved. Which of the following options is correct?

    • A.

      Dr. Gottman is wrong

    • B.

      Dr. Gottman was being realistic

    • C.

      All problems have favourable solutions

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Dr. Gottman was being realistic
    Explanation
    Dr. Gottman's statement that not all problems can be resolved is correct because in reality, there are certain issues in relationships that cannot be completely solved or resolved. This is a realistic perspective as it acknowledges that there may be differences or conflicts that cannot be completely eliminated, and it is important for couples to learn how to manage and cope with these ongoing issues in a healthy and constructive manner. It is unrealistic to expect that every problem in a relationship can be completely resolved.

    Which of the following are signs of NSO?

    • A.

      Hopelessness

    • B.

      Fatigue

    • C.

      Longing for one's partner

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Hopelessness
    Explanation
    Hopelessness is a sign of NSO because individuals experiencing NSO often feel a deep sense of despair and loss of hope. NSO, or Normal Stress Reaction, is a psychological response to a significant life stressor such as the death of a loved one or a traumatic event. It is characterized by symptoms such as sadness, difficulty concentrating, changes in appetite, and feelings of hopelessness. Therefore, the presence of hopelessness aligns with the signs and symptoms of NSO.

    NSO leads to being oblivious to most positive interactions. Which of the following will be the end result of this?

    • A.

      Bad feelings become the focus

    • B.

      Resentment begins to build

    • C.

      Disagreements occur frequently

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The end result of being oblivious to most positive interactions, as mentioned in the question, would be that bad feelings become the focus, resentment begins to build, and disagreements occur frequently. This means that when someone is not aware or fails to acknowledge positive interactions, they are more likely to focus on negative aspects, harbor resentment, and experience frequent disagreements.

      Fear

      Regret

    D. B & C
    Explanation
    The correct answer is B & C because fear, regret, and doubt are all prominent features of NSO. NSO, or National Security Operations, often involves high-stakes situations where individuals may experience fear due to potential threats or dangers. Additionally, individuals involved in NSO may also experience regret over certain actions or decisions made during the operations. Doubt can also be a common feature, as NSO often requires making difficult choices with limited information. Therefore, both fear and regret, as well as doubt, are prominent features of NSO.
