    Is it usual for individuals to try to repress traumatic experiences?

    • A.

      No

    • B.

      Yes

    • C.

      It's not possible to repress traumatic experiences 

    • D.

      It's a good way to avoid PTSD

    Correct Answer
    A. No
    Explanation
    Individuals may try to repress traumatic experiences. Repression is a defense mechanism that the mind uses to push traumatic memories into the unconscious, as a way to protect oneself from the emotional pain associated with those experiences. However, it is important to note that while some individuals may attempt to repress traumatic memories, it is not a healthy or effective long-term strategy. Repressed memories can resurface later, causing distress and potentially leading to mental health issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Therefore, trying to repress traumatic experiences is not usual or recommended.

    What happens when you play audios of complex information such as new languages while asleep?

    • A.

      You learn effectively 

    • B.

      It makes it quicker to adapt 

    • C.

      It disturbs your sleep and makes you need more of it 

    • D.

      It makes you sleep well 

    Correct Answer
    C. It disturbs your sleep and makes you need more of it 
    Explanation
    Playing audios of complex information such as new languages while asleep can disturb your sleep and make you need more of it. This is because the brain is still processing information even during sleep, and introducing new and complex information can disrupt the normal sleep patterns. This disruption can result in a less restful sleep, leading to a greater need for sleep to fully recover and function properly.

    Does our handwriting have any relation to our personality?

    • A.

      Yes, it does 

    • B.

      No, it doesn't 

    • C.

      It depends on the style 

    • D.

      It is the same as astrology 

    Correct Answer
    B. No, it doesn't 
    Explanation
    Handwriting analysis, also known as graphology, is a pseudoscience that claims to determine personality traits based on handwriting. However, there is no scientific evidence to support this claim. Numerous studies have shown that there is no significant relationship between handwriting and personality. Therefore, it can be concluded that our handwriting does not have any relation to our personality.

    Does our memory work like a recorder which therefore accurately records our experiences? 

    • A.

      No, we forget a lot  

    • B.

      No, it doesn't 

    • C.

      Yes, it does 

    • D.

      Only a few scenarios 

    Correct Answer
    B. No, it doesn't 
    Explanation
    Our memory does not work like a recorder that accurately records our experiences. We tend to forget a lot of information over time. Our memory is not a perfect reproduction of events, but rather a reconstruction based on our perceptions, biases, and interpretations. It is influenced by various factors such as emotions, attention, and personal experiences, leading to distortions and inaccuracies in our memories. Therefore, our memory is not a reliable and accurate recording of our experiences.

    Does having a yin to your yang ensure a long-term relationship?

    • A.

      Yes, it does 

    • B.

      There are exceptions 

    • C.

      No, it doesn't 

    • D.

      There are no absolutes

    Correct Answer
    C. No, it doesn't 
    Explanation
    Having a yin to your yang does not ensure a long-term relationship. While it is important to have complementary qualities and balance in a relationship, it is not the sole factor that guarantees longevity. Other factors such as communication, trust, compatibility, and shared values also play significant roles in maintaining a long-term relationship. Additionally, every relationship is unique, and there are no absolutes or guarantees when it comes to relationships.

    Is it true that people with schizophrenia have multiple personalities? 

    • A.

      No, it is 

    • B.

      Yes, it's not 

    • C.

      Yes, it is 

    • D.

      No, it isn't 

    Correct Answer
    D. No, it isn't 
    Explanation
    The answer is "No, it isn't." Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by abnormal social behavior, disorganized thinking, and hallucinations. However, having multiple personalities is a symptom of dissociative identity disorder (previously known as multiple personality disorder), which is a separate condition. While both disorders can cause disturbances in a person's perception of reality, they are distinct and should not be confused with each other.

    Is it true that mentally ill people are violent?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      It depends on treatment 

    • D.

      Sometimes 

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "No" because it is not true that all mentally ill people are violent. Mental illness does not automatically make someone prone to violence. While some individuals with certain mental illnesses may exhibit violent behavior, it is not representative of the entire mentally ill population. Many mentally ill individuals lead peaceful lives and pose no threat to others. It is important to avoid stigmatizing all mentally ill people as violent based on the actions of a few individuals.

      To understand scientific behavioral experiments 

    • B.

      To understand the various purposes of behaviors

    • D.

      To study observe behaviors 

    Correct Answer
    C. To scientifically study conscious experience 
    Explanation
    Wilhelm Wundt believed that the focus of psychology was to scientifically study conscious experience. He emphasized the importance of studying the inner thoughts, feelings, and sensations of individuals in order to understand human behavior. Wundt's approach, known as structuralism, aimed to break down conscious experiences into their basic elements and understand how they combine to form complex mental processes. By studying conscious experience in a systematic and scientific manner, Wundt believed that psychology could become a legitimate and respected field of study.
