How Good Of A Learner Are You? Quiz - Quiz

Are you familiar with the maxim, learning never ends? It really never ends. Every day is about learning something new and relearning what you know before! Learning is a great experience because it makes you a better person. But are you a fast learner or slow learner? Let's see how much you know about this here.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these is not learned?

    • A.

      Survival instinct 

    • B.

      Skill 

    • C.

      Preference 

    • D.

      Value 

    Correct Answer
    A. Survival instinct 
    Explanation
    Survival instinct is not learned because it is an innate behavior that is instinctual and present from birth. It is a natural response to threats or danger that helps ensure an individual's survival. Unlike skills, preferences, and values, which can be acquired and developed through learning and experience, the survival instinct is instinctive and does not require any external teaching or training.

    Which of these fields is not concerned with the process of learning?

    • A.

      Physiology 

    • B.

      Educational psychology 

    • C.

      Neuropsychology

    • D.

      Experimental psychology 

    Correct Answer
    A. Physiology 
    Explanation
    Physiology is not concerned with the process of learning. Physiology is the study of how living organisms function and the processes that occur within their bodies. It focuses on the physical and chemical processes that enable organisms to carry out their functions. While learning is a cognitive process that involves acquiring knowledge or skills, physiology primarily deals with the physical and biological aspects of living organisms. In contrast, educational psychology, neuropsychology, and experimental psychology all explore different aspects of learning and its mechanisms.

    Which of these is not a method by which learning occurs?

    • A.

      Classical conditioning 

    • B.

      Operant conditioning 

    • C.

      Punishment 

    • D.

      Habituation 

    Correct Answer
    C. Punishment 
    Explanation
    Punishment is not a method by which learning occurs because it involves the application of a negative consequence in response to a behavior, with the intention of reducing the likelihood of that behavior occurring again in the future. While punishment can suppress behavior, it does not necessarily promote learning or the acquisition of new behaviors. Classical conditioning, operant conditioning, and habituation, on the other hand, are all recognized methods of learning. Classical conditioning involves pairing a neutral stimulus with a naturally occurring stimulus to create a response, operant conditioning focuses on the consequences of behavior to shape future behavior, and habituation refers to the decrease in response to a repeated or non-threatening stimulus over time.

    Which of these is associative learning?

    • A.

      Change due to sensory adaptation 

    • B.

      Change due to injury 

    • C.

      Change due to habituation 

    • D.

      Change due to fatigue 

    Correct Answer
    C. Change due to habituation 
    Explanation
    Associative learning refers to the process of connecting or associating two or more stimuli or events. Habituation is a form of associative learning where an organism gradually decreases its response to a repeated or harmless stimulus over time. This change in behavior occurs due to the association between the stimulus and the lack of any significant outcome or consequence. Therefore, "Change due to habituation" is the correct answer as it describes a type of associative learning where a response diminishes in reaction to a repeated stimulus.

    What should you call a person who takes control of his learning?

    • A.

      Active learner 

    • B.

      Passive learning 

    • C.

      Fast learner 

    • D.

      Slow learner 

    Correct Answer
    A. Active learner 
    Explanation
    An active learner is someone who takes control of their own learning process. They are proactive in seeking out knowledge and actively engage in learning activities. This person takes responsibility for their own learning, sets goals, and actively participates in the learning process. They are motivated to learn and take initiative in acquiring new skills and knowledge. Being an active learner allows individuals to have a more effective and meaningful learning experience.

    When you learn by reward, what kind of process has your mind undergone? 

    • A.

      Operant conditioning 

    • B.

      Classical conditioning

    • C.

      Punishment 

    • D.

      Associative learning 

    Correct Answer
    A. Operant conditioning 
    Explanation
    Operant conditioning is a type of learning process in which behavior is strengthened or weakened by the consequences that follow it. In this process, the mind undergoes a reinforcement-based learning, where behaviors that are rewarded or reinforced are more likely to be repeated in the future. This type of learning involves making associations between a specific behavior and its consequences, leading to the development of certain habits or patterns of behavior.

    Who is the first to demonstrate classical conditioning using dogs?

    • A.

      Ivan Pavlov

      Roma Alphonso

    • D.

      Joel Osteen 

    Correct Answer
    A. Ivan Pavlov 
    Explanation
    Ivan Pavlov is credited with being the first to demonstrate classical conditioning using dogs. He conducted a famous experiment in which he conditioned dogs to associate the sound of a bell with the presentation of food. Over time, the dogs began to salivate at the sound of the bell alone, even without the presence of food. This experiment provided evidence for the process of classical conditioning, in which a neutral stimulus becomes associated with a reflexive response through repeated pairing.

    C. Rick Thoman 
    Explanation
    Rick Thoman did not work on the concept of learning. The other scholars mentioned - John Watson, Bruce Skinner, and Ivan Pavlov - are well-known for their contributions to the field of learning and behavior. Rick Thoman may be a relatively unknown or less influential scholar in this area.
